This is so totally pathetic: rolling back a changeset in Team Foundation Version Control. A decent version control simply must have a revert story - mistakes do happen, and when you need to revert a check-in that for the sake of an example has 20+ files associated, the advice in the aforementioned how-to definitely will drive your blood pressure up.

Instead of developing a medical condition, you can go for tfpt - the Team Foundation PowerToys. The command tfpt rollback is your friend.

The problem with this command is that it is not a real rollback (erase a set of modifications).

If you checked in a new file, it will mark the file as "deleted" in a new changeset
If you deleted an old one, it will mark it as "undelete" in the new changeset

So, you will have the 2 changesets in your history, the one commit before and the one to do the rollback, and potentially a lot of problems if you try to rollback an old changeset
