Replacing workspace contents with snapshots

You can replace the contents of a workspace with a snapshot to restore it to a previous state.


  1. Complete, deliver, or suspend and active change sets in the workspace. If you do not, the changes are overwritten by the replacement.
  2. In the Pending Changes view, right-click your repository workspace and click Replace With > Snapshot. If you have active change sets, a warning message reminds you that you can lose them if you continue.
  3. In the Repository Workspaces and Streams window, specify where to search for the snapshot you want to use and click Next.
  4. Select the snapshot to use, and click OK.


The contents of your repository workspace and your local workspace are replaced with the baselines included in the snapshot.
