Default VS2005 creates HUGE project folders

Hi all

I have a problem with Visual Studio 2005. I am building a medium-complexity project and the whole project folder has become around 25MB. So now, I work on it some more, adding 5-10 IF statements. And just like that, I notice that VS2005 takes bloody ages to build my newly edited project and the project folder has now grown to 147MB!! I've tried cleaning the solution, rebuilding the solution but none of this works. Why is this?

P.S. I tried to compress that 147MB folder and guess what... It shrinks down to 6.2 MB! There is definitely a lot of crap being created and built in my project by VS2005. How can I get rid of it and get a nice, tidy release with no bulls%$# in it?

Can you identify what files are taking up space? I have been working with .NET for many years and VS2005 for the last year and haven't seen kind of thing happen.
