Archiving A Visual SourceSafe Project

You can use Visual SourceSafe Administrator to archive projects that have fallen out of use. You can also restore projects if you need them back again.

  2. Choose Archive, Archive Projects from the Visual SourceSafe Administrator menu.

  3. The Choose Project to Archive dialog box shows a tree of Visual SourceSafe projects and subprojects. Select a project to archive from the tree and click OK. This will take you to Screen 1 of the Archive wizard, shown in Figure 2.1
