Deploying a project...How can I incorporate a folder of contents in the deployment install file if they are not in the project?

Open original thread
I am trying to deploy a beta of my first project and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of how to include a separate folder of files in the deployment (they are to be stored on the C:\ drive once the install is completed, outside of the installation directory). Do I add them in the reference paths area of the properties wizard prior to publishing? I'm new to deployment of projects. I'm currently using Visual Studio 2012.

Also, how can I deploy a SQL Server Compact database? When I try to install a deployment on another computer, it tells me that the path to the database is invalid. It's still referencing the path name in the project.
