Why and how to clear TFS client cache?

**** Update on February, 9, 2013 *****

Sometimes there are errors like “Cannot find team project” or you can’t create a project because duplicate name  despite of you don’t have one or you are not connected to that one that have this project, so all you have to do just clear the cache example of the error that could occur the following error

Cache Error

For example I clear my cache from the following path

For Visual Studio cache:

C:\Users\MRadwan\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Team Foundation\3.0\Cache

Or run from Window Run


This will cause your client Tool  to download a fresh copy of the cache the next time it deals with the server.

And everything  will  going well.

 For MTM cache


**** Begin of update ****

When we need to delete the server cache, we will navigate to “C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Team Foundation\Web Access\….

delete the cache files and reset the IIS.

**** End of update ****
