One of our documentation projects I upload to our companies
intranet for them to review individual topics. It's a large project
with some 2500 topics. If I make just one or two changes, it always
uploads a bsscftp.txt file for each subdirectory (which seems to
take a while to upload). What is this file for? Where does it come
from? I looked for it in my project directories but couldn't find
it. Any info?
Are you uploading via the Smart Publishing Wizard?
I'm guessing that you are. You may not know it as the SPW,
and instead just see a "Publish" button at the end of the
generation. The point being that I believe this file is one created
during the process of publishing. When you publish, (depending on
settings) a list is maintained of all the files involved. That way
if only one or two change, you only publish the changed files and
not the entire project. This can save time.
