Visual Source Safe's ANALYZE Tool

VSS 6 and later have a tool for verifying the VSS database: ANALYZE.EXE. It's locationed in the VSS DB's win32 directory. You can run ANALYZE.EXE from anywhere, but you have to pass it the path to the VSS DB. For example, from a command shell, run...

analyze -x -v3 \\myDFS.com\VSS\data

\\myDFS.com\VSS\ is an example path to a share to a VSS DB, and data is a VSS DB folder.

The preceding command will verify the DB and report any errors and/or inconsistencies.

To fix the DB, run the following...

analyze -f -v3 \\myDFS.com\VSS\data
