I can't unlock a particular folder in the TF server because it is locked when I was still using my old workspace name (oldName). When I reformatted my PC and I changed the workspace name to newName, I cannot unlock the locked folder in the TF server.
Whenever I attempted to check out a file inside the locked folder (using my new workspace name) results in the following error:
"The item $/.../lockedFolder is locked for check-out by [username] in workspace [oldName]"
I tried this command according to this site: http://www.woodwardweb.com/vsts/unlocking_files.html
tf workspace /delete /server:myTFServer workspacename;oldname
tf workspace /delete /server:myTFServer workspacename;domainname/oldname
This results to this error:
TF14045: The identity DOMAINNAME\oldname is not a recognized identity
