Where is the .git repository stored on Microsoft TFS 2015

I have a new TFS 2015 server which we’re using with Git, and I need to ensure that it is backed up properly.

In a standard TFS server, I’d just back up the SQL server database to ensure that the TFS is backed up.

  • I backed up a git project, and got “fatal: Not a Git Repository”
  • Git Publisher “target remote name” validation problems, single repo
  • git commit as different user without email / or only email
  • How to revert a specific file in a old commit on git
  • Using a Git hook to create a commit log and add to the current commit
  • How do I clone a github project to run locally?
  • In a standard .Git “server”, I’d back up the .git directory on the machine that has been designated to be the server in which the repositories are placed for the purposes of backup.

    However, I’m having some difficulty in determining where the .git directory would be on a TFS server when one uses it as a front-end for .git.

    I need to ensure our repositories are safely backed up to tape – does anyone know how TFS implements git repos, and in particular where the actual .git directory would be stored for each repository that is being served up by TFS?

  • Detach (move) subdirectory into separate Git repository
  • Prevent git from writing empty merge commits
  • How can I generate/apply git patches only for commits that alter specific files
  • Best way to migrate mercurial repo with subrepositories to git, preserving history?
  • Git or Mercurial usage in Java projects
  • Git prevents pushing after amending a commit
  • One Solution collect form web for “Where is the .git repository stored on Microsoft TFS 2015”

    In TFS the Git repository is stored in the SQL database together with all the other data. As long as you have a correctly configured full server backup of the TFS server, your Git Repositories are safe.

    There is no local folder on the TFS server containing the repositories.
