All of a sudden, I get the following errors when trying to build a VB application:

Error    1    Resource file "My Project\Resources.resx" cannot be found.    <Project Name>
Error    2    Unable to open module file 'G:\Projects\<Project Name>\<Project Name>\My
Project\AssemblyInfo.vb': The system cannot find the file specified.     G:\Projects\<Project
Name>\<Project Name>\My Project\AssemblyInfo.vb    1    1    <Project Name>
Error    3    Unable to open module file 'G:\Projects\<Project Name>\<Project Name>\My
Project\Resources.Designer.vb': The system cannot find the file specified.     G:\Projects\<Project
Name>\<Project Name>\My Project\Resources.Designer.vb    1    1    <Project Name>

The files:
    Resources.resx
    AssemblyInfo.vb
    Resources.Designer.vb
are not in the MY Project directory.  However, according to last nights backup they weren't there
yesterday either and I was able to build the project.

The changes I made today were to add a DataSet control and add code in the form to reference
application settings and an isolated storage file.  I added the following Imports:
Imports System.IO
Imports System.IO.IsolatedStorage
Imports System.Windows.Forms

What are the missing files used for and how do I recover from this?
