I am trying to migrate a Source Safe database to Subversion, using SSC2SVN and a local installation of VisualSVN Server.
I have successfully used VSS2SVN for the migrating of quite a few Source Safe databases before. Today, however, I get a lot of messages
SourceSafe was unable to finish writing a file. Check your available disk space, and ask the administrator to analyze your SourceSafe database.
I looks as if the directory structure is successfully generated, but files are not present.
Some things I have checked:
- The disk is certainly not full, over 100GB on the local disk, where VisualSVN Server has its repositories and where VSS2SVN has its temp directory.
- I ran the SourceSafe analyze.exe tool before migration and it fixed some minor inconsistencies.
- I could get a Latest version from Source Safe, after setting a working folder.
- I can browse the VisualSVN repository.
Surprisingly, this exact message is present in the first screenshot on the homepage of this tool, suggesting it is not problem. However, I do not see any files in my Subversion repository.
Stackoverflow has a question with the same message:
Visual-SourceSafe error - unable to finish writing a file
, so I think this message is bubbling up from the SourceSafe API, but none
of the answers solve my issue.
