There is an issue with VS 2010 that shows an incorrect message:
"Insufficient available memory to meet the expected demands of an operation at this time, possibly due to virtual address space fragmentation. Please try again later."
When you try to Cut or Copy code.
If you run with this issue there is a release of a patch that can be downloaded in the following link:
All you need to do is download and install it.
Note: In case of a real memory problem this patch will do nothing, it will only solve the problem of false memory errors.

Today is the first time I am restoring TFS 2010.
I have restored plenty of TFS 2005 and TFS 2008 and I am exiting, can’t wait to start the process.
First thing I am doing is finding good instructions for the process.
I have restored the Databases from the Backup machine to a folder on the TFS machine.
I am about to restore the data to a machine with the same name, very simple installation all in a single machine.
The process I am following is: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms252458.aspx

There is a Bug in TFS 2010 that shows a Red X On the Work Items tab in Team Explorer.
The Work Items become unavailable and when trying to get thru the Web Access you will get an error.
Microsoft will probably release a patch to solve it soon but until then…
It seems that the problem is being created from the queries section, when configuring Work Items we change or delete fields.
When you load your Team Explorer the project refreshes, the Work Item tab refreshes the queries too and when it finds changes in fields it just stops and we...

One very nice feature came with TFS 2010 that almost no one knows is the Work Item Groups.
In TFS 2010 you can define group of Work Item Types and filter work items using that group, for example lets take different Work Items for requirements: System Requirements and Detailed Requirements.
What I like to do is query all the requirements in the system, all I need to do is filter by the group: Requirements.
In order to change the categories you will need to export them to an XML file, change the categories and import them back to the server.
