Deletion of file in .git folder Edited

I have unintentionally deleted a file in the .git folder. The repository seems to still work (commit, push, pull, ... are working without problems). Could a deletion of a file inside the .git folder affect the files outside this folder? could the deletion undo some changes in the repository files?

Hi @Simone Croci,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

It depends which file you've deleted but I would definitely recommend you to clone your repository again to create the correct content of .git folder.

I will do... thank you
