Sourcesafe archive from batch file

I'm trying to use the SSARC utility in order to archive my
entire source safe database ("$/").
And I want to do this automatically (I.e. Batch file)

The problem is that when I run the application it shows me the list of projects, page by page, and want me to hit ENTER between each page. And this obviously can't be an "End of Day" batch file.

This is the Exact message I get at the end of each page:
--Press Q, then Enter to stop, or press Enter to continue--

This is the command I'm running:
ssarc -d- -i- -se:\sourcesafe -o "e:\vss archives\vssarchive3.ssa" $/

Note that I'm using the -i- switch

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try to remove '-o', this parameter paginates or redirects output.

ssarc -d- -i- -se:\sourcesafe "e:\vss archives\vssarchive3.ssa" $/

should work.
