Overall Satisfaction with Visual SourceSafe

In my organization, Visual Source Safe is mainly used to correctly manage the versioning of the various development files in Visual Studio. Since I use this product I can always have the correct versioning of the files, avoiding the loss of the code and analyzing the changes made by checking the previous versions.


  • avoid losing code
  • versioning of previous projects
  • saving versions on db


  • sometimes there are problems with check-in and checkout if done simultaneously
  • the user interface is not really nice
  • only source control
  • gains in avoiding loss of code
  • gains in terms of hours spent on development
  • gains in terms of time saved
Specific scenarios where this product works well are when: managing a large number of projects and you develop purely through visual studio, amount of the budget to evaluate similar but much more expensive products is not high, your company has developers that need a source code control and if you develop daily with a high frequency.
