Analyzing my Databes gives me the Message
"The data file for 'NOTE11.ICO'(xpeaaaaa.b) was not found"

I couldn't find the NOTE11.ICO in the Source Safe Explorer, neither the xpe.... in the filesystem.
So how comes, that VSS still knows about these files?
How can I avoid this error message?

"The file bxscaaaa appears to be corrupt. Unable to read the format or header.

What can I do?



Win2000, SourceSafe6.0, Analyze 5.00

RE: Analyse & Fix

Analyze error messages and sugegsted solutions are covered in the following Knowledge Base articles:

Q 152807 'Error Messages from Analyze Tool of Visual SourceSafe'

Q 160194 'The Data File for () Was Not Found'

Q 152807 should be printed out for future reference.

Back up your SS db frequently - our shop backs up to disk 4 times a day and to tape every evening. Analyze is run every Saturday.
