Users were complaining of a couple minor erros in one of our Sourcesafe databases, so I ran the Analyze -c -f on the database.  I forgot to use the -v4 command to show what it found, so the only thing that it displayed when it was finished was:

Database analysis in progress @  5/04/09; 9:12p.
Analysis complete @  5/05/09; 2:43a
      Some errors or inconsistencies were found and fixed.

In the "backup" folder, it put almost 102,000 files!  They are mostly non-descriptive, small files.  Some are labled "A Files" some are labled "B Files" and some are just labelled "Files".  Are these 102,000 files "bad" or something?  How do I find out any additional information on what the analyze "fix" did?

Thanks

By the way, our users are running Source Safe 6.0 and the Server is "hosting" with the 2005 version.
