    Default Cleanup Of Old Published Files

    Over the years, I have published files and web components that have become obsolete and are no longer used in my web app. But they still exist on the server.

    What is the best practice for removal of old pages and components that were published to the server and still reside in the publish folder?
    Is it safe to simply delete them from the server publish folder? In my case, I use IIS so this would be the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\project folder

    I do still keep the components in developer in case I ever need to go back to them for some reason.

    Default Re: Cleanup Of Old Published Files

    We always delete the app from IIS and delete the Application Pool before then deleting the entire folder associated with an old publishing profile from Windows Explorer. I've never tried deleting individual files from a folder though.
