R – Keep a TFS source backup in Visual Source Safe. Possible


We moved from Visual Source Safe to Team Foundation Server. Can I sync. TFS source control to Visual Source Safe? I would like to keep a backup of Team Foundation Server source control in Visual Source Safe. Just to have a backup server ready in case the Team Foundation Server rot out and we can quickly shift back to Visual Source Safe server which we once used to work with.


Best Solution

Don't. TFS server is much more robust and reliable than SourceSafe. If anything is going to rot, it'll be the SourceSafe backup or the mechanism you use to keep SourceSafe synced to the latest TFS code.

Just keep everything in TFS, back up the databases/server in the traditional way, and run diagnostics regularly to detect problems at the earliest opportunity.
