Publish Web site
SharePoint Designer 2010 is designed to work with content on a SharePoint Products and Technologies Web site. Therefore, the ability to create, edit, or publish a disk-based Web site and work with remote Web sites is removed. Unlike SharePoint Designer 2010, Office SharePoint Designer 2007 did support disk-based Web sites. When you edited Web pages from a Web site folder, metadata such as your logon name was saved for each file edited and used to display the author information, such as Created by or Modified by, for files in the Office SharePoint Designer 2007 Web Site views and File Properties dialog box. By clearing the Manage the Web site using Office SharePoint Designer 2007 metadata files check box in the Site Settings dialog box, you could choose to remove the metadata from the Web site folder on your local computer. Because the ability to open and work with disk-based Web sites is removed, this privacy concern does not apply to SharePoint Designer 2010.
Note: SharePoint Designer 2010 only connects to SharePoint 2010. To connect to SharePoint 2007 and earlier sites you must continue to use SharePoint Designer 2007. If you elect to install both applications side-by-side, you must download the 32-bit version of SharePoint Designer 2010, and install it after installing SharePoint Designer 2007. Please also note that 64 bit Office applications will not run if SharePoint Designer 2007 is installed; 64-bit Office 2010 applications should only be used if not connecting to SharePoint 2007 servers.
