Changing the TFS temp location

To optimize performance TFS uses a temp folder to get the files that you view. By default the location of that folder is %TMP%\TFSTemp. the TMP environment variable.

Unfortunately there is no option in Visual Studio or Team Explorer to change this location. The only way I found to change it, is by changing the %TMP% environment variable itself:

   1:  set TMP=D:\Temp 
   2:  set TEMP=%TMP% 
   3:  md %TMP%

Remark: Notice that it is possible that the same environment variable is used for other applications too. So be careful when changing this value.
