    Too many files

      I just installed the toolkit with DW CS3. I decided just to play around
      a bit, opened an existing page and began the Update Record Form Wizard.

      Suddenly I had dozens of new folders, files, and ftp activity - all
      before I actually placed anything.

      Is this normal? Flipped me out. I had to go through the site and delete
      everything. Please tell me I did something wrong, or at least why this
      is a good thing.

          Ahh I belive you mean the .. include folders right ?
          if u added something from adobe spry then it will create dozens of files into the spry assets folder.

          if it was something else... check if u have any other plugin/ behaviour installed in dreamweaver..

          It should be normal..

          ftp activity is to test ur site.
          if u have local test then it shouldn't happen..

          if its something suspicious and ur on windows then check for viruses..

          Hope this helps..

            hmm... so not the usual behavior then. No, I do not use spry. There was
            more than just the includes folder, but not sure what else now. I shall
            have to explore further.

            Thanks,

                Right, but I don't think that is what is going on here. In any event, I
                will probably create some test site to play with this again and see what
                happens.
