VSS history RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have successfully imported the vss repository / source history into TFS2008, but does it not include history from before 2005?

    I used the MS import command line app & the XML files as described online.

    Any thoughts?

  • Hi Gert,

    What was the import command line app that you used to migrate from VSS to TFS?  Did you use the VSS Converter utility (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms253090.aspx)?  This is the only tool that I know of that can migrate the history from VSS to TFS. 

    Is it possible that the files in VSS were archived at some point and then restored in 2005?  If that is the case, and you're using VSS Converter, that would explain what is going on.
