Copying files through the installer

I have an exe file (which I build through Wise for Windows installer) and a separate data folder. I dont want the files in the data folder to be part of the exe file but I want the installer to copy the folder to the destination while installation.

I can make two features(one containing the exe file source files and the other containing the files in the data folder)in the installer, but when I add files, the files in the data folder will be part of the installer when i build it. Is there a way I can keep the files separate from the installer but still copy them?

Many thanks

If the files are in a separate feature you might be albe to set this feature to stay uncompressed. Im not sure if and how this is possible in Wise.
