Project path question

P: n/a
Whenever I create a web project, a folder is created in c:\Inetpub\wwwroot
for the web part of the project, but then Visual Studio also creates a folder
in 'My Documents'. This works fine, but it would be more convienent for
backups if it could just create everything in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot.

If I create the project on a remote machine, it becomes a bigger problem for
backing up the source. Is there a downside to trying to force all of the
project folders to exist in the wwwroot? My thoughts are that I should force
all components of a project to exist in wwwroot, but wanted to get some
feedback on that first.

Hello Brian,

Just open .cproj file from the c:\Inetpub\wwwroot folder with VS, and studio
ask you where to save SLN file.
Point to the folder in the wwwroot. Thus You will have whole solution in
one folder
