Hello,

I use TFS. I try to add an item and I get an error message:

Cannot add the item. There already exists an item with the same name under source control that prevents this add operation from continuing. Please rename the item and try adding it again.

I've got this error after a number of rollbacks of some changesets (not all of them between a current and an initial changesets).

I am the only user of this TFS and only at one location. So it is not a problem that somebody didn't check in his/her changes.

Thank you

Run a compare to have all differences in your whole tree. That could show the  problem.

Possibility is that you have played with other locations so you are looking at the wrong place.

Since TFS keeps track of deleted items, you might have an item that was deleted that had the same name.

Please make sure there is no file with the same name in the local folder.

Hi!

Have you deleted the File you are trying to add?
however try to Undo Pending changes and then try to add the item again.


Thanks!

Hi!

Also if the Item you are trying to add is showing RED CROSS mark against it. then undo changes that will undo the Delete of that item and try replacing the item.

Thanks!

Hello,

Thank you all for your suggestions. Unfortunately nothing's helped. I ended up with restore the whole TFS form backup.
