Cannot fully analyze the database while Visual SourceSafe is being run

Cannot fully analyze the database while Visual SourceSafe is being run

(OP)
I have my VSS database on a Windows Sever 2003 box set up to automatically analyse the database every night.

Sometimes the analysis fails night after night with the following in the logs:

CODE

Visual SourceSafe Analyze Version 8.0
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

e:\vss\win32\analyze.exe -vx -i- "e:\VSS\data"

Database analysis in progress @  8/08/06; 0:30.
File e:\vss\data\status.dat is already open
Cannot fully analyze the database while Visual SourceSafe is being run. Use -X to run a partial analysis.
Analysis complete @  8/08/06; 0:30

Looking at files in use on computer management does indeed show the file is in use, but doesn't list a user name. Closing the file from there allows the analyse to go ahead.

What is causing this file to be opened and not closed, and how can I prevent it so the analyse goes ahead?

To answer my own question, the files were being opened by the "Visual Sourcesafe LAN Service". I don't think it gave much of a speed improvement so I've disables it.
