VB.net/ VSTO backups

Hi

I have a VB.net Excel Add-in that I have been building for the past two years. The project files are around 50 MB and I wanted to find out which files are necessary for backing up so that I can save space.
Our installation team only need the three files shown in the image.
Are these three  files sufficient for me to back up with too?

Thanks

The 3 files are installed files. Assuming you use VS2010, you need to backup the code(*.cs), the  project files(*.csproj, *.xml, *resx), certificate and any third party dll you are using in your project/solution.
Note: 1) You do not need to backup the bin folder.
2) Do this backup on a clean solution (VS2010: Right click your solution and click clean solution context menu). This action eliminates any generated file.(e.g addin.dll, .vsto)

Hi. Thanks for that. I still don't understand why the VSTO zone does not come up when you search for it on this site
