Working offline with Team Foundation Server

2007-07-19

    I’m just about done reading Professional Team Foundation Serverand at the end I found this little gem:

    This tip needs the Team Foundation Power Tool (tfpt.exe) to work.

    When you are working offline you just clear the read-only attribute on the files you want to edit. Later, when you are online, you open the command line, navigate to your workspace and run:

    tfpt.exe online

    Now the power tool will find all those writable files and create a change set from them.

    Remember that you can not rename files while offline, but it is ok to add or remove files.
