The workspaces command of the tf command-line utility displays information about workspaces on the current computer, owned by a specified user, or for all workspaces associated with a specific Team Foundation Server. For each workspace, Team Foundation displays the name, owner, comment, and computer name. With detailed output, it also shows the workspace mappings. Unless you provide a filter such as owner, computer or workspace name, Team Foundation only displays information about the workspaces that you have created.
