Migrating from Visual SourceSafe

The Team Foundation Visual SourceSafe converter tool transfers files, folders, version history, labels, and user information from a Visual SourceSafe database to Team Foundation source control. Before you move files and historical information to Team Foundation, you should analyze a backup copy of the Visual SourceSafe database, check in as many files as possible, and understand what information cannot be transferred from Visual SourceSafe to Team Foundation.
