SYMPTOMS

After you perform some operations in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server Service Pack 1, some files may not be visible in Source Control Explorer.

Consider the following example. A solution that is added to source control has the following characteristics:
  • Project A contains Folder A and Folder B.
  • Folder A contains File A and File B.
  • File A and File B are checked out.
  • Project B contains some folders.
In Source Control Explorer, you follow these steps:
  1. You move Folder A from Project A to Project B and then rename Folder A.
  2. You make some changes to File A and to File B and then check in the changes.
In this example, if you check out Project B and then examine the contents in the change set, File A and File B are changed successfully. However, File A and File B cannot be found in Source Control Explorer.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because some files continue to reference the old parent folder in the old project after you move a folder across projects and then rename the folder.
