The biggest files in there are a collection of databases, one of which is called "PointOfInterest.db" which is 253.4MB. What that is is beyond me but I imagine it has something to do with the geolocation of pictures...maybe?
That was fast! Drive capacity allows for inclusion of heaps of files...10MB for a picture of a wood panel? Wow. Graphics guys will be happy! Will check it out this time zone it's bed time!

Don't really know VS, have only played around a little, but I've generally heard good things. I'm a Delphi guy, brought up on it starting '99 and still going strong! Me and the other 0.001% of developers
