About Adobe GoLive Web site management

To take full advantage of all the site building and management tools in GoLive, you must use GoLive to create or import a site. GoLive helps you set up all of your pages, media files, and resources in a logical folder structure and creates a special document for working with them. This document—your site project file—opens up the site window and displays an exact replica of the files and folder structure on your desktop. It is from the site window—not the desktop—that you build and restructure your site, link pages and images, store reusable site assets (such as page templates), and transfer and synchronize the site files with your server. It is important that you do all your work, especially adding, removing, or renaming files, within the GoLive site window and not on the desktop. If you do add a file from the desktop, you will need to update or refresh your site window when you next open GoLive.

Another reason to work exclusively in GoLive is that GoLive creates additional files and folders to contain the tools it uses to manage a site. For example, GoLive creates a .data folder to hold all of the reusable site designs and site asset files, components, stationeries, and site trash.
