You may receive the error "File <filename> Not Found" when individually adding files to Visual SourceSafe when those files have names that contain spaces.
Visual SourceSafe may not correctly reference the file in the Add Files dialog box. This is due to the fact that filenames with spaces must be enclosed in quotation marks in Windows 95 and Windows NT. Visual SourceSafe may not properly add these quotation marks under certain circumstances.
When adding files that have spaces in the names, select the file with the mouse in the file list or enclose the filename in quotation marks in the File Name text box.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.
