My workspace.xml file was preventing me from opening my project so I foolishly deleted it as it is not a file you check in so I thought everything in it would be recreated.
Unfortunately it appears that the shelved changes are stored in the workspace.xml and I had a lot of shelves!
Fortunately, the Local History came to my aid and I was able to create some empty files in Windows Explorer and use the Local History to get the content.
The Local History for my class says Rollback 6 files.
In the normal VCS dialogs you can see other files affected in the transaction.
Is there anyway to see what the 6 files affected were in the rollback that created my shelf?
