Debug and Release are different configurations for building your project. Which configuration you use can be set within the Visual Studio environment.

If you select Debug, all compiled binaries will be saved into the debug folder, and vice versa.

Generally you would use Debug mode during development and debugging of your project, whereas you would choose Release mode for the final build for end users.

The Release mode enables optimizations and generates less extra debug data, whereas the debug mode adds lots of extra debug data to make debugging your project easier.


Hope that helps.
