How to: Add and Remove Folders in the File System Editor

By default, the File System Editor displays a standard set of folders that represent the folder structure on a target computer. There are additional standard folders, referred to as special folders, which can be added to your deployment project as necessary. For more information, see Special Folders and Custom Folders.

You can also add your own top-level custom folders, or you can add subfolders beneath any top-level folder.

To add a special folder

  1. In the folder list of the File System Editor, select the File System on Target Machine node.

  2. On the Action menu, point to Add Special Folder, then click the special folder that you want to add from the resulting menu. Folders that are already in your project will be disabled, as will any folders that are not applicable to your project type.

To add a custom folder

  1. In the folder list of the File System Editor, select the File System on Target Machine node.

  2. On the Action menu, point to Add Special Folder, then click Custom Folder or Web Custom Folder.

    The new folder is highlighted in the folder list.

  3. Type a name for the custom folder.

To add a subfolder

  1. Select a folder in the File System Editor.

  2. On the Action menu, point to Add, and then click Folder.

    The new folder is highlighted beneath the previously selected folder in the folder list.

  3. Type a name for the new folder.

    TipTip:

    If you added the subfolder to the wrong folder, you can move it to another folder by dragging it.

To remove a folder

  • Select the folder and choose Delete from the Edit menu.

    NoteNote:

    Only empty folders can be removed. If a folder contains outputs or files, you must first move or delete the contents before removing the folder. The Application Folder is required for all deployment projects and cannot be deleted.
