I am developing an (Intranet) asp.net site and copy files to the site as and when they are created or amended using Visual Studio 2005.
On the server each folder in the site has a _vti_cnf folder. I think this is something to do with FP extensions which are required in order for me to be able to copy files across in the way I am.
1. How come these folders contain a complete copy of all the files in it's parent folder?
For example if I have a folder that contains 1.html, 2.html, 1.jpg, 2.gif then the _vti_cnf folder will also contain 1.html, 2.html, 1.jpg, 2.gif
This site will end up being huge and doubling up on size is not good.
2.Is there a way to stop index server indexing these folders without me having to specifically go into IS add the folders and then exclude them from the index?
