Hi There,

In our project we are trying implement version control. We want to version control each file not a as whole project. Because there are many developers in my team. Checking-out individual files will make it easy for every on in the team. Looks like it is not possible with Import/Export utility.

Is there any other way to do this ?

Please suggest

My understanding is source control is coming in 8.2 - but it's starting with Microsoft Visual Source Safe. I believe this is what I heard at Summit 2016. Other repositories to follow later.

We have our files on the reporting server, not in the contents repository. If you're in the same boat, you can use any version control system you like, directly on the file system.

We have nothing but good experiences with Mercurial/Hg. Subversion works well too.
I don't trust Microsoft Visual Nuclear Power Plant Designer... Ehr... Visual Source Safe much, mostly because it's from MS and their weird ideas about software.

My understanding is even Microsoft didn't use it much. Last release was in 2005. It's been discontinued.

I wouldn't trust it much either Smiler

Interestingly, I discovered that multiple versions of resources are stored in the Content Repository, though there's no easy to get at an individual version.

source control is possible on content folder in DEV Studio, but you need a 3rd party tool like PuskOK for this.

We never had much luck with MS source safe either and it never seemed to play well with WF. Our server admin had to constantly maintain the source safes repository because it would always crash or become corrupted. Once it did that we never knew what version it was gonna give back to us. We abandoned it after losing days worth of work.

Maybe it's gotten better in WF8...
