Data folder (use of) clarification

Two questions. (Using ExeOutput V2021.0)

If everything is contained in the compiled exe, and the only calls outside the exe are to files located on an external web site, is a there any reason to deploy a Data folder with the application?

If no, for a deployment using MySQL, then only the exe and the mysql folder would be required. Correct?

I have many projects like you describe and never include a Data folder.

Not many of my projects have mySQL, but few that do, do not have a Data folder.


Thank you. And thank you for helping.
