      For the Find by Status feature, we’re working on an extension to add this capability back to VS. We don’t yet have an ETA for the availability, but I’ll update here when it’s ready.

      For tfpt online, scorch, and treeclean, the functionality has been replaced by tf reconcile. If you use tfpt {command} /help, you’ll see a message about the specific options to use to get equivalent functionality with tf reconcile.

      Tfpt uu doesn’t have a replacement in tf.exe. The old tfpt commands should continue to work against newer versions of TFS and VSTS.

      Thanks,
      Matt Mitrik
      Program Manager | VSTS

        What we've done to allow migration to VSTS is run a scheduled task that does a nightly get latest on the entire source which then gets compressed into a zip and stuck in a backup archive.

        It's not the same as having a database we can restore to an on-site TFS server, but it at least means we keep a copy of the source every night.

          We are working toward a self-service solution. In the meantime, you can change the region of your Visual Studio Team Services account by contacting customer support via the basic or premium support links on this page: https://www.visualstudio.com/team-services/support/. A member of our support team will reach back out to the owner of the account to confirm the request and schedule the move.

          Update: Over the past months, many customers have used this process to move their accounts from one region to another. We are continuing to work toward a self-service solution for this process, but do not have a firm schedule to share as of yet.

          Thanks,
          Aaron Hallberg

                    Really important for us too. When I suggest moving to VSO my manager always says what about backups? With an on-site TFS we store a SQL backup every night of the whole repository, but in VSO that's not possible.

                    Accidental deletes is a key reason to need a full backup of the repository and saying "Azure is reliable" isn't good enough when you're talking about putting your most core and crucial software in the cloud.
