I'm trying to do a Copy Web Site from VS 2010, to a file share on a staging server. The server shares out wwwroot (I shared it out), and I've mapped this on my development machine. There's a folder under wwwroot named ClientSystem, where I want to copy the
web site. In fact, I've already done this a week or so ago, from this same computer. But now, I can't. Instead I'm getting this error message:
"Open Remote Site
The Web site T:\ClientSystem does not exist. Would you list to create it?"
Like I said, it most definately does exist. The file share to wwwroot on the server
does exist. The folder ClientSystem under wwwroot on that server does exist. And if I bring up Windows Explorer from that development machine, I can easily browse to it, no problem at all.
I'm trying to do a Copy Web Site, using the file system, because FrontPage Server Extensions are not installed on that server. Never have been. Never needed it to. The Copy Web Site treating T:\ClientSystem as a folder I could copy to worked fine a week
or so ago.
So, why does VS 2010 not see it, nor want to work with it?

Never mind. I've found that if I reconnect to the file share on the server, I can do a Copy Web Site that way.
