SSIS and Folder Development

SeTech asked
Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-11-10
After I developed a package for SSIS I traced to the folder where the package was stored. What I noticed was that additional folders were developed so:

1. I guess SSIS adds folders to the file system because that's just how it works? Correct?
2. One specific folder I noticed was named "bin" and in that folder looked to be another copy of the SSIS dtsx package. In other words the dtsx package gets duplicated and placed in the bin folder. Why is This?
Thanks to all who assist.
Watch Question

Those folders are created by the designer, for what purpose I have no idea. I have tried deleting them in the past to "clean up" my disk but they just keep coming back so just leave them alone now. The designer needs them for something. The only .dtsx file you need is the one in the project folder.
