How to get rid of .suo files? RRS feed

Answers

  • Just delete those.

    It contains information about what settings current user has selected for his/hers VS working environment, nothing that cannot be recovered/recreated. Other users won't use this same .suo file anyhow, as it is not stored in TFS (or it should not be there by default).

  • Hi K.Kong,

    Thanks for your post and sorry for the delayed response!

    As Ilpo said, the .suo file is a user-specific file, and cannot be shared between developers. The .sln file can be shared between developers on a development team.

    So based on my understanding,  you can delete the .suo files.

  • Ilpo, thanks.  Before I start deleting this file, would anyone or Microsoft like to second this recommendation?  Thanks.
