File/Folder to Branch

 

 

Source file : Specify the file/directory to branch. Use wildcards (*) to specify multiple files.

 

Destination : Specify a file, or a folder, to branch to. If you specify a Team Foundation Source Control folder, the branched files will be created inside it.

 

"Immediately Get a copy of the branched file..."

 

Check this option to automatically retrieve a copy of the branched file.

 

Version to branch

 

Instead of branching from the latest version of the file, you can choose to label a specific version. Versions can be selected by changeset number, label, a specific workspace or a specific date.

 

 

Locked branched file(s)

 

Check this option to lock the branched files against check in or check out by other users, before the pending changes are checked in.
