  • You can delete the bin, bld, GeneratedArtifacts, and obj folders under any of the projects. The exception is the bin\Data folder found next to the *.lsxproj. If you delete the Data folder, you will lose any data in the development database. If you don't care about that, then you can delete this folder as well.

    This is the same set of folders that can be deleted as was specified in every previous version of LightSwitch (it has not changed).

  • HI,

    To avoid potential problem, I don't think it's good way to delete some folder before making a compressed backup. Perhaps you could take some actions to optimize your codes, I think this will be helpful for us.

    Regards
