I have a folder called Docs in my ASP.Net 2.0 web project which contains about 30 PDF files, all approximately 5Mb.
All of my HTML is stored in a Database, so my links to these PDFs are not referenced within the project. (As far as I know - how can I tell?)
Considering that every build will compile the entire project:
1) Can I exclude my Docs folder from the build, and then upload that directory manually without any issues?
2) Should I just remove the PDF files and leave the Docs folder?
3) Should I leave it as is?
4) How can I ascertain if these PDF files are referenced?
Also can someone please explain what occurs on the build process in simple terms.
Thank you in advance.
