I am new to sourcesafe and have just started to add projects to manage source control. I have a wierd problem as follows:

When I create a new project and set the shadow directory files are automatically copied over and everything looks OK. When a file is revised - checked in and out. this does not update the shadow.

Does any one have any pointers for where to look, settings etc ?

FYI I am using SourceSafe Ver 6

Dear NSCexpert

Check your Shadow directory setting in MS VS Source Safe. It might be deleted. that's why it is not updating.

i mean the setting of the shadow directory may be deleted. that's why your new work is not taking place in shadow directory.

problem now solved, for the record the process that tweaked it was as follows:

create the project
create the shadow
upload your files from visual studio.

It must be done in this order for it to work.
