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.

Shelving enables you to set aside the pending changes in your workspace to work on a higher-priority task or to share your code with another user for code review.
