create n archive step for team foundation

We have team foundation 2008 , we might be able tio upgrade to 2010. but what I was really looking for is there a way in team foundation to have a step like check in but called archive, where it woudl basically move your source to an archive location.

I am not sure that I understand what you mean by an "archive" location, but that almost sounds like a Shelf Set:

Shelve and Unshelve Pending Changes
