How To Permanently Delete TFS Project

Filed under: Team foundation server 2010 — Ravendra Mishra @ 2:39 pm

Team foundation server projects can be permanently deleted. In case you delete the project from team explorer it wont be deleted at all, this wont show to your local team explorer view but it will remain in the database hence visible to other team members.

In case you want to delete it permanently then this can be done in following two ways. (This deletes the whole project; this process is not reversible. Before using these, make sure that all important data has been backed-up appropriately)

  1. Command line
  2. TFS Administrator console

Though data will remain in warehouse database, in case you want to delete entries from warehouse as well then rebuild the warehouse database.

  1. Command line

    TFSDeleteproject [/q] [/force] [/server:servername] team project name
