Version Control Tip: Excluding specific files from multiple checkout


Can I define a file name, not only a file type (extension), if multiple checkout is allowed for the whole Team Foundation Server?


Yes, that is possible, although the UI shows “file extensions” and displays it in a way that you might think that it’s not supported.

As a result you can specify that *.cs files in general do support multiple checkout but a certain file called “specific.cs” follows exclusive-checkout logic.
