I have a Visual Studio 2003 project under Sourcesafe but I would like to create a fork in my current project and add it into a new Sourcesafe. How would I go about removing the solution bindings (and anything else relating to Sourcesafe) off of my project
without removing the project from my original Sourcesafe (or changing it in anyway) and then adding it into a new Sourcesafe so I can have 2 separate projects under 2 different Sourcesafes.

I guess you can first branch the folder in VSS.
Then do a get latest of the new branch, open it in up VS2003, and using the IDE you can change the bindings to VSS to target the new branch.

Thanks for that.
I need to move the project to a brand new SourceSafe. I tried to just copy the code into a new SoruceSafe but I ended up getting a load of error when ever the solution was opened in Visual Studio.

You pretty much need to unbind it from VSS, you can do this by using the options in the IDE or manually delete all thats vss files that are scattered through all the folders.

I agree with Jimmy. To remove the SourceSafe bindings from your solution/project, you can refer to my reply in the following thread.
