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

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

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)
