I deleted a TFS project using TFSDeleteProject.exe, it did not delete the source code root folder (maybe because some files were checked out). Is there a way to delete the source code root folder? The delete command is disabled for the root folder.

Does your root folder contains any files or Is it only the folder you are trying to delete?
