_vti_cnf ?

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by =?Utf-8?B?Sm9oblI=?=, Jun 3, 2004.

  1. In my VS web forms project folders there always seems to be a sub-folder with the name _vti_cnf and that sub-folder seems to contain copies of all of the webforms and code behind files. Does anyone know what this stuuf is. I'm backing up my work to a 100mb Iomega disk and it's running out of room just before the backup is done and if I can get rid of this stuff it might help

    Also, there are files with the extension of .resx which don't seem to be required when I post the completed projects to the web. Some of them also seem to be constantly 'checked out' from the Source Safe but don't check back in when I tell it to check everything in. Are these files required

    Thanks

  2. The _vti_cnf folder is used by the FrontPage extensions to track the current
    state of the Web and its files. If you are using the site for development or
    special FrontPage features, you'll need these.

    The .resx files are usually not needed by VS.NET which will regenerate them
    when required.
