Use Team Foundation Power Tools to Unshelve a Change

- J.D. Meier, Jason Taylor, Alex Mackman, Prashant Bansode

The Team Foundation Power Tools (TFPT) provides version-control functionality that is not available from Visual Studio. For example, you can use TFPT to help support offline working or to perform rollback operations in order to undo check-ins of a changeset. Consider using TFPT if you need to unshelve a change.

The unshelve operation supported by TFS does not allow shelved changes and local changes to be merged together. By using TFPT to unshelve a change from a changeset, if an item in your local workspace has a pending change that is an edit, and the shelved change is also an edit, then TFPT can merge the changes with a three-way merge.

You run this command from the command line by using Tfpt.exe.
