Understanding the Limitations of Visual SourceSafe

Although Visual SourceSafe is a powerful product, it does impose some limitations that you should be aware of. User and group permissions can't be set when an object is under SourceSafe control. In fact, when you add a database to SourceSafe control, SourceSafe removes all user and group permissions! Furthermore, you can't put replicated databases under source-code control, and you can't move, rename, or copy the local version of the database and continue working with it under SourceSafe control. To move a database, you must first check in all objects, delete the local database, and then re-create the database in the new location.
