I am using a Windows 10 Pro 64 bit machine which should be up to date. Version 1803 (OS Build 17134.706)

Dreamweaver CC 2019 build 11212.

Windows IIS Version 10.0.17134.1

I had a website that just went something like this: All are folders until the parenthesis info.

Archived Pages

db

Layouts

Library

Logs

Scripts

Site

Templates

Yellowstone

(then all of the files not located in the above folders.)

Once I attached the site to IIS I now have a folder wwwroot with the above information within it. Templates folder, wwwroot folder then Yellowstone, etc.  I.E. The overall directory has duplicate files.

Assumption on my part. The correct files to use are the files within the wwwroot folder.

Question: can I safely remove all of the files not within the wwwroot folder? If yes what is the safest way to do it? Or do I just wacke them out of existence.

Thank you for your response. Hopefully I gave you all information needed and was clear with my questions.

A website needs a web server. In the case of IIS, the root directory of the webserver is wwwroot and all of the files associated with the web site need to be placed inside that root directory.

If you want to delete a folder, then the obvious choice is to delete the folder that is not inside the web server.
