Hi Kiran

There is no direct way to import all a VSS repository into RTC. You could go via Subversion (and use Subversion inside RTC as the SCM part), or export VSS to Subversion, then import the Subversion repository.

Another approach is to get the versions of your source you want to keep, and add those to a new RTC project area.

Do you need all the versions you have stored in VSS?

Anthony,

For your second option, I have got latest version of files and folders from VSS to my desktop. But how do I add those bunch of files and folders to RTC steam at one time ? What options do I have ? Please share your experience.

In the RTC client (Eclipse) File - Import - General - File system (or the other options under General).

When changing SCM systems, usually you want to identify baselines/releases in the old system that you want to retain.
Then you import the oldest and baseline/release it in the new system and then go forward and you end up with your core system.

If you only import "latest" you will have to keep the old system around for a bit. If you only want to test things, "latest" can be good enough though.
