VSS: How to Fix a Broken 'Working Folder' Structure

I have a VS project that somehow ended up with a less than advantageous folder path of

C:\Documents and Settings\moss-admin\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Projects\MyProjectName\

Changing this in VSS proved to be difficult: you have to edit each folder's working folder path.  P.I.T.A.

Then Kevin pointed me to my very own ss.ini file sitting on the server:

\\server\vssfolderpath\vss\users\oskar_au\ss.ini

Turns out this file stores all the unique Working Folder paths - to fix my problem all I had to do was replace all the individual entries that looked something like this

[$/MyProjectName/Foo/Bar]
Dir (POA1) = C:\Documents and Settings\moss-admin\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Projects\MyProjectName\Foo\Bar

with a single

[$/]
Dir (POA1) = C:\Projects

Problem solved.
