I need to do force check-in/undo check-in the files in TFS that are check-out or locked-out by a user who is no more work for my project.
Here are the scenario's I came across in the middle of development, 1) User Name for a user is changed 2) Hostname of the users system changed 3) System hard drive crashed 4) The user has moved out of project or company.
Kindly suggest the solution if any. Thanks in advance.

You will need admin access to TFS and the ability to run command line. Here is a link to a post that explains what to do http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1690520/how-to-undo-another-user-s-checkout-in-tfs
Also if you want to do it via GUI you can search and install TFS Power Tools. It is a Microsoft add on for TFS thats lets you do from TFS explorer.

When you want to edit a file you can open it from Solution Explorer or from Source Control Explorer. When you begin editing a file, it is automatically checked out to you.
