Aside from keeping a reliable shared copy of your source code, one of the main advantages of using source control is the ability to see all changes that have occurred and look at any version of the code from the past. In this course, you'll explore change history, file history, as well as how to find the source of changes, search for changesets, and undo changes with rollback. Nearly all operations in TFS version control depend on the system knowing the relationship of local files to server files, so you'll examine changing file mappings, using workspaces, and the features of local workspaces. You may not be responsible for management and administration of your organization's TFS server, but being aware of the available capabilities can help you make good decisions when setting or changing policies. To finish out this course, you'll learn how to secure code access, configure check-in options, clean up local folders, and interact with TFS outside Visual Studio. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
