Sorry about this title, but actually you cannot delete a source controlled folder without assigning first a workspace, BUT, but you can avoid wasting disk space avoiding to recursively download all the files in that folder, so it’s what I think you want to do, and then here’s the steps:
- Open the “Developer Command Prompt for VS2013”
- Go to the workspace folder where you have the folder you want to get without recursively get all the items
- run the command “tf get <folder path>” without the /recursive switch
TF will get only the first level content of the <folder path>, then you can go back on visual studio team explorer, delete the folder and checkin the changes 🙂
