TFS - Working with shelvset

TFS use 2 notions :

  • changeset
  • shelvset

Both contains a group of source file revisions, check-in notes, a comment, and links to associated work items. Changeset contains in more a collection of committed and versioned file changes.

You can restore a shelvset into your workspace using the command Unshelve.


  • A shelvset is a non-versioned entity. If you or another user unshelve the items of which a shelveset consists, edit several files, and reshelve the shelveset, Team Foundation does not create a new version of the items for future comparison and maintains no record of who revised the items, when, or in what manner.
  • You can delete a shelveset but you cannot delete a changeset.
