Backing Up Project files.

P: n/a

I am developing using Visual C#.net. It appears that my web projects create
files in both "My Documents\Visual Studio Projects" and ".\inetpub\webroot".
Does backing up these files ensure that my code is all backed up? Is there
a backup/restore FAQ somewhere?

Yes - if you backup both locations, you're in good shape. For web projects,
the primary files are locatedin the inetput\webroot\. If you are doing a
desktop application, or creating a class library .dll, those files would
primarily be stored in the my documents folder. Note that you can modify
the default location of your .NET solutions in the options of VS.NET.

As it is .NET, all you have to do is copy to back them up ... nothing fancy.
Restoring the files after a drive loss would only requiring setting up
virtual directories, and then putting the files back in their approrpriate
spot.

Good luck.
