When you create your first connection to TFS the local client downloads the metadata required to work with the TFS work items. By default it downloads the metadata for all team projects in a collection, including the ones that you don't have access to. Martin Woodward has a great blog post if you want to read more on the background info, however the way you enable it has been changed in TFS 2010.
In TFS 2010 we have introduced Team Project Collections, which introduced the need to be able to set this value per collection. So we moved the setting to the TFS registry in TFS 2010 and TFS 2012 instead of in the web.config. This post contains the script for updating this registry value. If you want more information on the TFS registry, see this blog post.
#TFS 2010 (10.0.0.0) [Reflection.Assembly]::Load("Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a") #TFS 2012 (184.108.40.206) [Reflection.Assembly]::Load("Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a")

How do we improve the performance of copying each and every item in a solution with 15000+ individual files (1 million+ lines of source + all of the supporting files).
I don't understand your question. Why are you copying each item in a solution?
I try this solution, but my Visual Studio 2010 really slow on the first time hit TFS 2010!
It's very fast on the second and later hit (I use local high speed network). I stop using tfs for about 2 mins and it's slow again.
When I use Visual Studio 2010 in TFS server it's always fast. :(
