installing community on existing site error in deployment center




I have a very irritating problem. I am to install community on my existing Episerver site. I open up the deployment center and do the steps accordingly. First time I run it it works perfectly. However, I accidently build my project without changing the config files in debug folder so all the changes that deployment tool have made with the install is lost. I then remove the whole folder and roll back to how it was before I did the install. Now however I get a error saying that some file allready exist. I have no clue what the problem is. Can someone help me? It's impossible that some file from community would be present in my project. I removed every file and created a new folder for my project.

See error below :-) 

Kind regards
