I am new to TFS from the admin side but I do know how to do basic check-in of the code. How can I avoid the code collision from admin side?
Customers calls me in the middle of the night telling me that they have lost files and lost changes, after the shuck is over I ask them what they did, they tell me: Because that I am tired of getting to customers in the middle of the night I decided to write this post explaining how does it work.
Lets start with that the Get Latest Version is not overwriting local changes, so if you have deleted a file than the system sees it as an intention of making a change with the file, at that case deleting the file from the project.
So at that case when doing Get Latest Version you will not get the deleted file. Get Latest Version works in a check list method, means that when it gets a file from the server to your local file system it writes down the file and its version, it will not get that file again until the file version will be changed on the server.
In case you made local changes and changes have been made on the server the Get Latest Version will trigger the merge window in order to merge your local changes with the server changes. Here are some examples: You trigger a Get Latest Version and get all the files from the server, one of the files is test.
You check out the test. You trigger the Get Latest Version once again. A check is being made in the check list and the source control finds that the server has V5 for test. You check your local changes and you can still see them.
You delete the file. A check is being made in the check list and the source control finds that the server has V5 for Test.
You check your local file system and you find that the file is missing. A check is being made in the check list and the source control finds that the server has V6 for test. The source control also see that your local version contains changes, so it triggers the merge tool.I have installed TFS for the first time - checked everything in on the dev box, I am now mapping everything on the build machine but I have 11,+ conflicts saying a writable file by the same name exists on the local machine.
TFS Merge option to allow overwrite Reported by craig evans Apr 10 at AM windows visual studio version This is a common practice: When a team promotes code between branches, a merge is performed from e.g.

The writeable file conflict in itself is a bad joke at best and mostly a recurring annoyance that makes whole teams detest their work ^^ Checking files out to. Why is TFS asking to resolve conflict after get specific version.

Yes simply deleting the snapshots will merge them but the VM has to be shut down for this to happen. And unfortunately there is no obvious indication that this occurs in the Hyper-V manager apart from an Action option called something like "Cancel Merge in Progress". I introduced Git to my dev team, and everyone hates it except me. They want to replace it with Team Foundation Server.
