Question on project files

I've found that many times my classview information will inexplicably not be accessible, or the auto-complete of object methods/paramters will go away..

There are project files like project.ncb and project.opt for example, that if I delete them and re-run VC++ 6.0, things come back.

I'm wondering which of the following files are re-created automatically, what they are for, and which ones I should never delete.. (Assum the project is called "project")

PROJECT.APS
project.dsp   (project, this I'm sure I should keep)
project.dsw  (workspace, this I think I should keep)
project.mak
PROJECT.ncb
PROJECT.opt
PROJECT.plg
project.reg


Thanks!

To re-created the class view information delete the file .clw. When pressing Ctrl+W the next time a dialog will pop-up asking you whether the file should be recreated.

project.mak is a make file created from the project file. It can be re-created at any time from the project menu->Export make file.
project.opt is storing options for this project like lib files to include etc.. Shoud be kept unless you need to restore default state.
.ncb can be deleted: http://www.gamedev.net/community/forums/topic.asp?topic_id=180776
.plg is a HTML result of the last build.

class view will also not be available if the project is already open either on your computer or on another computer.

Actually this is what I had expected, but in many instances, doing so would not work.. it would recreate the CLW file, but the class view and auto-complete were still not available within the project.. which led me to start deleting some of those other files.
