If you hold on to a specific Team Build retention policy (new since TFS2008), you might lose all valuable build information of a particular build that you actually wanted to keep.
There’s an option available via the Build Explorer to retain builds indefinitely!

By default, Team Explorer always tries to automatically connect at startup to the latest known Team Foundation Server. In my case I often start Visual Studio Team System at home when I was previously connected to the Team Foundation Server at work. So, when disconnected from work, I always get the TF30331 error …
Today, this error hit me for the last time! On the Developer Support Team Foundation Server blog I found how to disable the auto-connection! Sweet!
To make this happen, add a DWORD value called “AutoLoadServer” under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\TeamFoundation (for 2005 – change this to 9.0 for Orcas). A setting of Zero means do not reconnect automatically.
