Hello @MFP_Admin and welcome to the Community!

When git is cloning the repository, it will automatically create the local folder for you where the repository will be stored. If the folder already exists in the directory you provided and it's not empty, git will error out with the message you received "destination path already exists and is not an empty directory" 

In this case, you will need to first delete the existing folder F:\eeasy\Products\posMonitorClient  then try to clone the repository again :)

You can try that solution and let us know how it goes!

Note: I've edited your post to remove the screenshot as it container private information.

Thank you, @MFP_Admin !
