While using Web Application Project (WAP) with VS2005 SP1, when I add a Web Deployment Project for WAP, it copies the following files as part of the
deployment (In the Release folder, for a Release build).
1. .aspx files. (ASP.NET Pages)
2. .ascx files. (ASP.NET User controls)
3. .csproj files. (Web application project files)
I understand the need for PrecompiledApp.config to part of the deployment. Am baffled as I couldnt find enough information on this anywhere.
Is it necessary to have other files also? Can we delete the other files during deployment? (like the .csproj file for instance)
Thanks in advance

The .csproj file or .vbproj file is used to save the project information. Visual Studio uses this file to compile ASP.NET application. When we use Web Deployment project to precompile application, WDP might copy these file, such as .csproj or obj folder,
etc, to target directory.
When you deploy your application on server, you can delete them.
I look forward to hearing from you.
