I am working on BlogEngine.Net 1.2 in Visual Studio 2005. This project is under VSS 2005 source control. I use the VS2005 Copy Web Site feature to upload changes to my remote host via FTP. This works fine. I make some configuration changes on the hosted site using a web browser and then try to Copy the resulting settings.xml file from the remote site back to my Visual Studio 2005/VSS 2005 working folder hoping that the copy Web Site feature would check out the local file and replace it with the one copied from the remote site. According to the VS 2005 copy Web Site status and log the copy transaction was successful, but I can't find the new file in the local target folder and the VSS 2005 integration doesn't notice it as well.

Is anybody using this kind of scenario successfully?
