Our server that hosted our source safe went down.  Now that it's back up, is there a process to get the files from our local machine back up the source safe server so they're synced up?

Do you have a backup of VSS before it crashed ?

If yes Then
  0. Restore the backup on the "new" VSS server.
  1. On your local machine, create a copy of all the files where you've made changes, say in folder "d:/backup"
  2. Check out all the above mentioned files from VSS in your working folder.
  3. Now replace the files in your working folder with files from "d:/backup"
  4. Check in all the files.
  5. Now tell other team members to do "Get Latest Version"
Elseif No Then
  1. No other alternative - Just recreate the VSS - New Project with all your files.
End If

All the best !
