Hello Robohelp Community,
In the Robohelp Project I am working on, we currently generate our content to a different folder than the Defualt !ssl! Output Folder. I was wondering if there is any problem or drawback to deleting the previously generated contents of this folder (right now it seems to just be taking up space and causing our backups to take longer). Will this harm the current project in any way? I appreciate any help. Thank you in advance.
Nope, not at all - non-RH2019 projects will try to default there, but they will wipe the sub-folder named for the Single Source Layout you've chosen before generating again anyway.
Nope, it starts completely empty and only gets files in it when a project has output generated. If you generate again, you can see one of the first dialogs saying "Clearing output folder..." as it wipes out that flavour of output (e.g. \!SSL!\WebHelp\ gets wiped the next time you generate WebHelp).
I routinely clean out the entire folder when I go to zip up a project for archiving - saves so much space!
