Publish website - keep my folder!

I have a very simple asp.net web site. Within the site is a folder where a file is created.
When I publish this site (FTP within Visual Studio 2012) the folder is not copied across with the .aspx pages and the bin folder. I have to remember to create the folder manually on the webserver. When I do some more work on the site and publish again the folder again is gone (set to delete remote files before publish).
How can I tell VS2012 that the folder within the solution is a dependant part of the project and needs to be FTP'd with the rest?

It's a limitations of VS that it won't deploy empty folders.  If you want it to deploy you'll need to add a dummy file to the folder.
