Problem:

SourceSafe was unable to finish writing a file. Check your available disk space, and ask the administrator to analyze your SourceSafe database.

Resolution:

  • Product Name: Star Team
  • Product Version: 2005 R2
  • Product Component: VSS integration
  • Platform/OS Version: All

Question:

Why do I get the error "SourceSafe was unable to finish writing a file. Check your available disk space, and ask the administrator to analyze your SourceSafe database"?


Answer:

This error will occur is there is no "temp" folder on the same directory as the "data" folder in a VSS repository and can happen when copying VSS archives from one machine to another. As a workaround just copy the "temp" folder from the other machine or create an empty "temp" folder on the same location.
