  • Migrating from TFVC to Git (for large repositories) - Mick Philippon
    So, you decided to switch from TFVC to Git. But how can it be done, knowing that you want to keep the whole history, that you have actually more than 25 000 changesets in your TFVC history, and that you can’t do it while people are working?
