Allow to move more than one file at once in TFS source control
It is currently only possible to move files one by one in TFS source control, which means that it takes a lot of time to move several files from one place to another place. It would be great if one could select multiple files and move them to another place at once.
Been a year and a half ...

You can achieve this using tf.exe rename but it would be nice if it was part of the UI.
I have to move 500 reports into an archive project so that we will retain them but they will not be clogging up our active solutions. This is a terrible feature to not have! Move... only works with one file selected? =(
1. Make a project (add it to TFS).
2. Add the files to the project. Note: you will probably want to make the project (the .csproj file, not the folder) in the root of the folders containing the files and folders to be moved. Also, you can use the "Show All Files" button in the Solution Explorer to find the files, then right click on them and select "Include In Project". This works with one selection or multiple.
3. In the Solution Explorer window move the files around as desired.
4. Check in your changes

This would be a great feature, as I am working with high volumes of SQL scripts and it is a painful slow process of moving them one by one.
OMG!!! I got this problem today.. shame

This is definitely painful today. It's on the backlog to improve this in the future.

This is really a shame for such a tool!
