team foundation server trial expired?

After your 180 day license expires, you are immediately locked out of all source control operations with an error like "The request failed with HTTP status 403: TF30072: The Team Foundation Server trial period has expired or its license is otherwise invalid. Install a licensed edition of Team Foundation Server to continue."

If you need to grab your source one last time (to export into another version control system, for example) - set the server clock back. It takes effect immediately.
