We have an ASP.NET website where the count of all files ads up to over 12000. 8500 of which are images. We'd like to know what's the best way of seperating release files from development files.

We have been playing around with the Build > Publish... capability of VS2015 which does exactly that however for files to be published they must be manually included in Project, which:

  1. May introduce errors if we miss to include a file in the project
  2. It seems to really struggle to handle this many files. The project is particularly slow when including large amounts of files.

So we wonder if there's an alternative perhaps more elegant way of separating build files from release files.
