This article describes how to back up a Visual SourceSafe database.
- Make sure that no one is using the database and that Analyze will not begin to run while you are backing up the database.
- Copy the following folders:
- Copy the User.txt and Srcsafe.ini files.
You can also use this procedure to move the database to another location by placing the copied files into a new folder. To open the database, on the File menu in the Visual SourceSafe Explorer, click Open SourceSafe Database to browse to the new location.
