What is the issue if I mark undeleted, migrate and mark deleted again.
I know VSS creates new versions for files and projects if we undelete or
Will this create any problem.

To list the files/projects deleted:

ListDeleted (PROJECT)

   LIST all the files/subprojects deleted in PROJECT
   foreach element in the LIST {
       recover element
       if(element is a subproject/folder) {
           delete the element
       print element

By this we could list current deleted files/project in the VSS.
Similar code could be written to recover, migrate and mark deleted again.
