SSRESTOR Utility

Visual Studio 2005

Restores information from a previously created archive. If the restore operation attempts to create a duplicate file or project name, the operation fails. Visual SourcSafe also implements restore operations through its Restore wizard, available in Visual SourceSafe Administrator.

NoteNote

SSRESTOR cannot restore a project that is larger than 2 GB. A project larger than this cannot be archived.

ssrestor [-C][-I-][-L][-O][-P<project>][-S][-T][-X][-Y]
<archive file to restore> [files/projects]

The following table describes options available with this command.

-C

Specifies a comment (standard Visual SourceSafe parameter). The comment is applied to the history entry for restored item(s).

-C-

Specifies no comment.

-I-

Specifies no input (standard Visual SourceSafe parameter).

-L

Specifies a list only, without any restoration.

-LA

Specifies a list of all files and subprojects listed under a project, for example, project $/A.

-O

Redirects output (standard Visual SourceSafe parameter).

-P<project>

Specifies a project to which to restore content. For instance, if you archive $/A/BAR.C and then restore it, it will be restored as $/A/BAR.C.

-S<srcsafe.ini path><data path>

Specifies a path to Srcsafe.ini and the Data directory.

-T

Tests the archive file for corruption, but does not actually restore from the archive.

-X, -X-

Identifies an item that you want to restore, for example, $/a/b. This option distinguishes between deleted projects and undeleted projects that have the same names. For example, if you have deleted $a/b and specify the -X option, SSRESTOR restores the deleted $/a/b. If you specify -X-, SSRESTOR restores an undeleted $/a/b. Even though they have the same name, note that these are two different projects that the utility treats differently.

-Y<user>,<pwd>

Specifies user name and password (standard Visual SourceSafe parameter). An example is -YAdmin,Moggy.

archive file to restore

Specifies the name of the archive file from which to restore the database.

files/projects

Specifies files and projects to restore.
