Question: What lock types does TFS supports?

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


Team Foundation Server provides two types of locks: check-in and checkout locks. A check-in lock is less restrictive than a checkout lock. When you apply a check-in lock, users can continue to make local changes to the item in other workspaces. The changes cannot be checked in until you explicitly remove the check-in lock from the workspace or you check in the file.

A checkout lock is more restrictive than a check-in lock. When you apply a checkout lock to a source-controlled file or folder, users can neither check out the file for editing nor check in pre-existing pending changes. You cannot acquire a checkout lock if an item currently has any pending changes.
