It seems that if the .ncb file is missing it get regenerated.

P: n/a
Meant to post this here but put it into the c# NG by mistake.

Been reading the doc about NCB store.

I need to send a small solution to someone and notice my .ncb file is much
larger than all the other files put together. I tried deleting it and then
opening VS and it appears to work OK.

It seems that if the .ncb file is missing it get regenerated. Do you know
that to be true?

Is what I'm doing OK?
Thanks

Yes, it is.

Yes. The NCB file should be thought of as a kind of local cache. If it's
missing, it'll be re-created. You usually don't want to send the .suo file
either, as that stores local solution options (like which files you had
open, etc). It too will be re-created if it's missing.
