The chart (Figure 4) is the VSS user interface, we can first look to its familiar.

Documents area

District Projects

Toolbar

Figure 4 VSS basic interface menu bar and toolbar, we will be described in detail in the future, tell us about the following project directory and file areas:
Ø Project directory area: Show all are using the directory, we can list in my area to create the directory, you can delete or modify the directory (in the definition of competence, we ban all users to delete the directory).
Ø District documents show that: in the selected directory, the file display will show all the directory files and can view the file information, such as the directory is edited by whom, etc..

3.2 Change User Password

Figure 5 the basic functions of the district directory, we set up in the permissions, only allow users in my directory (ie "/ $ / Amethyst 2.0 platform / personal backup / [username]" ([username] username that I ) directory under the directory and allow to create a new directory, the directory in other areas does not allow users the freedom to create.
Example: For example, Wang Chao users log in, be in the directory area, "Wang Chao," the above article directory Right-click pop-up menu, we can choose to "Create Project", which can create a new directory of the district.

Figure 6 to create a new directory in the dialog box shown in Figure 6, we input the name of the directory, and then in the comment section of the directory to write simple notes (VSS not allow comments, but we suggest to you all that a simple increase in the Notes section of shows a simple function of the directory). Click "OK" button that can create a new directory.

As shown in Figure 5, right column function, we can see that the second is the "Set working Folder ...", that is, specify the working directory, it means that the specific machine in the directory to the directory to create a mirror, Well, after we the files in the directory detection (Check out), the document can be specified directory to find local work.

3.5 Add Files



Figure 7 Toolbar
Like other software with Microsoft, each of the functions we are able to be achieved through a variety of ways, in which the same VSS, such as we have mentioned in 3.3 to create the directory functions, and a toolbar button which functions is the same. We can not be described at a later date, please use them in their own experience.
We now explain the second button, "Add Files ...", this initialization file in the directory particularly useful.
We should first of all districts in the directory selected a directory, that is ready to add files to select a target directory (that is, options in the above with the mouse click). And then this button, a new pop-up dialog box.

Figure 9 Add Files
In accordance with "Add" button will pop-up dialog box in Figure 9, we can enter a short text of the Notes, described in these documents, in the following, we can see a check button (Apply same comment for all files), we can generally be on the hook, so that each file can use the same note, if you do not check this check button, then you choose will depend on the documents, will once again pop up the dialog box to let you enter Notes for a particular document.
Check the following three buttons must be in accordance with "Addvanced>>" button before the show. We can choose, respectively.
Sometimes we will encounter such a situation, in our project document which not only contains a separate file, and also contains many subdirectories, then how do we do?
In fact, method of operation is very simple, all we need as in the figure below, in Windows, browse to the folder, and choose to join the files and subdirectories, and then use the mouse to drag the VSS can display the document.
