publishing vs 2005 web site takes 20 minutes

P: n/a
I have a very small web site built using vb 2005. One page uses a login
control and the other 2 pages use grid view, linked to my MS SQL database.

when i publish the site (I click Build / Publish web site, FTP), it takes
about 20 minutes to publish ! Also, visual studio is completely unresponsive
during this 20 minutes. Very fustrating!

I have tried checking and unchecking "Allow this precompiled site to be
updatable", but this makes no difference to the publish time.

Any ideas please, as this is driving me mad!

thanks

I used to have this problem with FrontPage when my hosting provider was
sluggish. Now I use webdrive (www.webdrive.com) which mounts the server as
a network drive, publish to local disk, and then update via the webdrive
link. In the past I've always used scripts to do this, based on Robocopy
(free as part of the Windows 2003 Resource Kit Tools), which is an
astonishingly powerful and flexible remote file synchronisation tool, but I
note the latest version of Webdrive has a simplified synchronisation
facility built in. Webdrive will retry up to 10 times, and reconnect if
necessary, so there is a degree of resilience built-in. The default number
of retries for Robocopy is 1,000,000!
