An email arrived in my Inbox recently from a customer that read,

“I've got ALOT of questions, and I hope you could help me...

  1. How do I use Shadowing in .NET?
  2. How can I force users to check in their files and log out of SourceSafe so that I could lock the DB?
  3. How can I split a DB?

Help needed ASAP please!  Thanks dearly!”

Dude, you came to the right place. 

In general, if you have questions about Visual SourceSafe, you can see everything I've ever published on the subject in my blog by clicking the Visual SourceSafe category on the right hand side of my blog page. On the page that appears, scroll to the bottom of the main frame and click Full Visual SourceSafe Archive.

For answers to your questions:

  1. How do I use Shadowing in .NET?
    See, SourceSafe Shadow Folders, Maintaining Synchronicity.
  2. How can I force users to check in their files and log out of SourceSafe so that I could lock the DB?
    See, End-to-End Analyze Script for Keeping a VSS Database Healthy (user ejection seat not included).
  3. How can I split a DB?
