Description Eric Beisecker 2012-03-07 18:26:29 UTC
Current Behavior: Deleting a project in a MonoDevelop solution deletes the entire solution if the 'Create Directory for Solution' checkbox is unchecked at project creation.

Expected Behavior: Deleting a Project in a Solution should NEVER delete all projects in the Solution.

-(In MD) File->New->Solution
-Enter 'ProjectOne' as the Project Name
-Uncheck the 'Create Directory for solution' checkbox
-Continue with Project Creation
-Add a new Project to the Solution 'ProjectTwo'
-Right click on 'ProjectOne' and select 'Delete'
-In dialog click 'Delete From Disk'
-Click 'Delete'
-None of the Projects in the Solution now exists on Disk.

Did you choose "delete the whole base directory"? I think that's what it means.
If you really don't want this to happen, see if this patch will help: https://github.com/mono/monodevelop/pull/164

The "delete the whole base directory" option will now not be available if the directory contains the solution file or files from other projects.
