Visual Source Safe - blank files in project
Posted on 2014-04-28
Running Microsoft Visual Source Safe 2005, and when my programmers open up a specific file in the project it is blank. When going into the history of the file, with each entry in the history the file opens up blank always. First thought was that the database maybe corrupt. So I had all users log out, ran the Analyze scan with the switch -F and -V4 and the results fixed other corrupted files but the file in question still opens up blank. Also ran "SS physical" to scan the targeted directory with the blank files and the results of the output file do not report corrupted files.
I am a newb with VSS 2005, does anyone have any suggestions or pointers on how I can get this file back? It is obvious that this file was never empty to begin with, at some point it just went blank and I am not sure on how to get it back.
