TF400030: The local data store is currently in use by another operation.

Arrrggghhh!

Sometimes Visual Studio drives me nuts….

I’ve been getting constant “The local data store is currently in use by another operation.” errors when using both Visual Studio 2013 and Visual Studio 2012 and while Microsoft claims that its resolved. This definitely doesn’t appear to be the case, so here is the workaround that worked for me.

Navigate to C:\Users\[LocalUserAccount]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Team Foundation and kill everything in that folder. Kill it with fire! 

Once that’s done you should be good to go! (at least for another 10 minutes before it happens again)
