Hi All,
My Problem:
If a File F1 is checked into Visual Source Safe (2005) On lets us 12 April 2009.  When I checkout the file into my local drive on 20th April 2009, the date time of the File in local directory is 20th April 2009.  Is there any way I could retrieve the Orignal Date i.e 12 April 2009?
Your suggestion is appreciated.
Thanks in advance
