Microsoft Expression Web uses metadata to maintain the cross-page dependencies that are required for some Expression Web features.
This is written with the assumption that you are working with your site on your hard drive and NOT editing the site live on the server. You should receive a notice of the number of files attached to the DWT and asked if you want to update them. You should then get a notice like the one shown below.
