Hello and Happy New Year,
I have created a project in VS 2010 using ASP.NET MVC3 and I want to add an App Data folder but the option is not enabled.
Can you please help?
Thank you in advance.

option is not available only if you already have the App_Data folder in your solution. check the solution explorer carefully.

There is no App_Data folder in solution explorer :( and the App_Data option through Project -> Add ASP.NET Folder -> App_Data is still no available.

strange! it's like i said in my MVC project. when i delete the App_Data the option will become available. otherwise it's not active.

maybe this helps you, at the top of solution explorer window there is a toggle button called 'Show All Files' when you move the cursor it'll show you that text as a tooltip. make sure it is selected then just to make sure referesh your solution. to do that
there is a button with two green arrows so press it and then wait for a second or two after that check to see if App_Data shows up. another way is to go to the project folder(main root) and search for App_Data in there.
