There are times when you want to know who has not checked in their files. This will happen when migrating servers, removing a workspace of a non existent user etc. we can use the “tf” command line utility for retrieving all files that are checked out by a specific user.

e.g for listing of checked out file by specific user and workspace execute the following commmand:

TF status /server:<SERVERNAME> /workspace: <WORKSPACE NAME>;<USER ID>

for getting all checked out files on a server execute the following command:

TF status /server:<SERVERNAME> /workspace:*
