Retreive folders with Label

Retreive folders with Label


I am trying to get some folders that have labelled in VSS. What I ahve done is:
    Accessories A1 -> Labelled as "For_Product_A"
    Accessories A2 -> Labelled as "For_Product_A"
    Accessories B1  -> Labelled as "For_Product_A"
    Accessories B2 -> Labelled as "For_Product_B"

Now, when I do a Show History (Included Recursive, Include Labels) and then do a GET by selecting the Label "For_Product_A", i find that that Get is retreiving all the files from ACCESSORIES A & ACCESSORIES B. Why is it so. Can any body help me?

I have also tried by writing a batch file:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VSS\win32\SS.exe" GET $/Product/*.* -r "-VLFor_Product_A" -yGuest

This also does not give me any result.

Can any body help me with the labelling issue?
Thanks in Advance for your help
