HOW TO remove deleted branch from TFS that still appears in Visual Studio

This is the story, if you don’t have time to read it, scroll down to read directly the solution.

Today I’ve noted that in the list of the TFS branches in my Visual Studio there was a branch that had been deleted by one of my colleagues but it was still appearing in my list.
I’ve tried first to refresh the list, than tried to cancel it but it was creating new changes to check in and this was not exactly what I was expecting…
I tought it was because I had downloaded the content (there was a local folder connected) but nothing again. Used the funciton “Get Latest Version” but it remained still there. “Check In Pending Changes” showed the message that there was nothing pending to check-in.

Solution:
Right-click on the branch in Visua Studio then select “View History”. On the top of the list you should see the changeset related to the deletion, Right-click on it then select “Get This Version”.
