- It's faster. Handoffs can be completed in hours, where full imports can take days.
- It's less susceptible to VSS corruption. Since Handoff only gets the latest versions of VSS files, it will be able to complete in situations where historical corruption prevents the full import from succeeding.
- It's more faithful. Since VSS does not version folders, the full import must sometimes "fake" folder history and labels. Handoff keeps label and folder history operations in VSS.
- It's easier to try. With Handoff, if there are changes in VSS after the Handoff was performed, you can easily diff the VSS version against your Vault version. The full import is a one-time process.

Vault offers a new method of converting from VSS to Vault, called VSS Handoff. It has several benefits over the older full VSS import. This is available in Vault 5 and later versions.
