What is the significance of all the multitude of folders that are produced by FP97. Since the Publishing Wizard won't work, how many of the files are needed when I manualyy FTP?
Thanks.

FrontPage creates a huge amount of space dedicated to it's "publishing process" and "overal site management"

If you're just creating individual pages (and aren't, say, verifying your site's links) then you probably don't need a lot of what's there. Your pages are only kept in one directory, the other stuff is quasi-mysterious . . . . However, unless you're really cramped for disk space I wouldn't reccomend deleting anything, as FrontPage can be tricky, it integrates tightly with Windows and Office, and when I uninstalled it I found other Microsoft products wouldn't work right.

Basically there's about 20megs of trash there, and you'll probably be unable to get a detailed listing of all the files you don't need, so I'd just leave it, and save your html docs to where you need them, and leave it at that. If you're really ambitious, you could read your manual/readme files w/a fine tooth comb, and call MS and probably relieve yourself of about 10 megs, but is it worth it?
