Often when i build the project with Visual studio my assemblies in the bin are gone and i can't compile. I already created the _bin_deployableAssemblies folder and copied all the dll's to this folder but it still occurs now and then.

What do you mean your assemblies in the bin? What exactly are you trying to do?

Well i partially fixed this problem but i still wants to know why i happens:

Often when i have a error on a page by for example an module error, visual studio sometimes removes dll's from the bin directory. I have to copy the original dll's from the Orchard zip to my bin directory and i see i miss a bunch of files. It sounds strange but sadly it really happens. I'm the only one? Now i don't have errors anymore and the disappearing dll's problem is gone.

I've never seen anything like it, but it might be that you forgot to declare a dependency or add a reference.
