Offline Checkout/Check-In in TFSC

  1. A contributor syncs his workspace and takes his laptop home for the evening.

  2. At home, he continues working and chooses to check out a file.

  3. An unmodified copy of the checked-out file is placed in the contributor’s cache on his local computer.

  4. The contributor continues to work and check out additional files. Unmodified copies of all these files are placed in the cache.

  5. When the feature is complete, the user attempts to check in the change set. Because the user is offline, the check-in option is not available.

  6. Wanting to begin work on the next feature, the user shelves his modifications for retrieval and check-in when he is able to go back online.
