PHPStorm keeps creating deleted folders

It looks like PHPStorm keeps creating folders I deleted from my computer. So I create a project pointing to a folder. But when I move or delete this folder the folder keeps being recreated. What can i do about this?


But when I move or delete this folder the folder keeps being recreated

Is it being re-created on a certain event, or immediately?

A couple of thoughts:

  1. Please check if you have a deployment configuration set at Settings/Preferences | Build, Execution, Deployment | Deployment.
  2. Any VCS configured for the project (Git, Subversion, Mercurial)? Is it possible that you pull those folders from there?

I can't find out when the folder is created. I have some connections in deployment but they don't have any reference to the local project folder.

I use GIT but the folders aren't created when pulling.

It is always the same folder in all projects though, I'm working with drupal and for some reason it keeps adding my custom template folder. Even when I'm only working in the finder, I delete the folder and in a few seconds it's back again.


Sorry, writing the above made me wonder if it is a PHPstorm problem at all. I think its not, so I'm looking into Dropbox as my problem.
