So I am uploading files to the wwwroot directory for the server and storing a pointer file in the database with the name and location of the files. What I noticed is that after a publish it has wiped out all of the sub-folders and files that have been uploaded. Is this an issue with the publish itself? Is there a way to exclude those sub-directories and files from being deleted? I am tring to figure out what happened to the attachments and that is the only thing I can think of and the timeline matches.
