Microsoft – Team Foundation Services [TF] – Get – Info/Error Message – “All files are up to date”

Introduction

There is nothing quite like it. You ‘re trying to get latest source code files from TFS and so you launch a command shell and issue “tf get ” and TFS tells you “All files are up to date.”

Background

We are trying to get folders and files from TFS

tf get -recursive

But, issuing the above statement you keep getting this very verbose message that states that “all files are up to date“.

Ensure that folder is under TFS Management

Launched explorer and tried determining whether folder is being managed by TFS.

FolderListing

From the screen above, one can quickly see that the first folder has the green triangle\marker besides it.  But, not the second folder and so it is obvious that the second folder is not being managed by TFS.

List TFS Working Folders

Team Foundation :- List working folders mapping by issuing “tf workfold

tf workfold

tf-working-folder-listing

TFS Working Folders – Add

Team Foundation :- Add working folder

tf workfold $/TFSLAB/demoHR D:\TFS\Sources\demoHR

List TFS Working Folders (Confirmation)

Team Foundation :- List working folders mapping by issuing “tf workfold

tf workfold

TF Working Folder Listing (Confirmation)

We now have both folders under TFS.

Go back and issue “tf get -recursive”

tf get -recursive

Ensure that folder is under TFS Management

Summary

Please, please keep in mind that this is a specific user-case where folder mappings between the TFS Server and my local folder are out of place.
