I think this is a bad decision about TFS.

To keep the history, I have to take a "MOVE".

In other words, in addition to "MOVE", what else can I do to make a branch with original history

Thx in advance.

Hello,

we know that this is weakness of history command (it doesn't follow branches). In v1 you can use tfpt history (unfortunatelly no gui provided). We are also investigating adding this feature in the next versions of tfs.

Please keep in mind that move and branch are quite different (I don't say that there are no case when you can't use both of them) - with branch you create of the items (connected by branching relationship).
