The Visual SourceSafe Database

The Visual SourceSafe database contains all the files that Visual SourceSafe maintains. Visual SourceSafe stores the files in a proprietary, compressed format.

You will find the Visual SourceSafe database under the main Visual SourceSafe directory (usually named VSS) in a folder named Database.

You will see several files under this folder and a lot of other folders containing many other files. You should never try to manipulate the contents of the Visual SourceSafe database manually, because Visual SourceSafe has its own internal scheme for managing the database.

It is possible to have multiple Visual SourceSafe databases set up in the same environment. When administrators or developers open the Visual SourceSafe Administrator or the Visual SourceSafe Explorer (as mentioned in the following sections), they have a choice of Visual SourceSafe databases.

Figure in the section titled "Using Visual SourceSafe Explorer" illustrates the choice of databases for a user in Visual SourceSafe Explorer. A Visual SourceSafe administrator can also archive and restore Visual SourceSafe databases, as discussed further in the section titled "Archiving and Restoring Visual SourceSafe Databases."
