Question: How should I migrate my source from VSS to TFS?

Answer

TTeam Foundation Server ships with a VSS converter that allows you to migrate files, folders, version history, labels, and user information from a VSS database to TFS version control.

The converter does have some limitations that are important to understand; for example:
  • Historical information about file sharing is not preserved. Team Foundation Server does not support sharing. The migration of a shared file results in copying the file to the destination folder.
  • Historical information about branching is not preserved.
  • Team Foundation Server does not support pinning. Pinned files are migrated by creating two labels.
  • Timestamps associated with actions are not preserved during migration.
