Doing a checkout into a filled directory

I try to checkout a repository into a filled build directory (first step -> prepare the environment, second step -> checkout code) but it fails with the message: 

"fatal: destination path: XXX already exists and is not an empty directory".

I could add the "clean" flag for the checkout process, but than my platform is missing. How could i just do a normal checkout within the current (not empty) build directory? ( a git init +  git remote add + git pull instead of git clone )

It sounds like what you might want to check out to a subfolder in the working directory by providing a value for 'Checkout Directory'
