Xcopy deployment describes deployment in ASP.NET where you use the drag-and-drop feature in Microsoft Windows Explorer, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), or the DOS Xcopy command to copy files from one location to another. The ASP.NET application requires no modifications to the registry and has no special installation requirements for the host company on hosted sites.

Xcopy deployment does not require that you install any special software on the development computer or on the Web server. The Visual Studio .NET Copy Project method requires that you install Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions (FPSE) on the remote server. Xcopy also permits you to replace only the most recently-edited files. You can either select the files manually to replace them, or you can use the /d switch on the Xcopy command to specify the date, as follows:

xcopy source [destination] /D:m-d-y
