Why does a deleted, local repository come back?

I have a folder of SQL files I want to track changes on. In learning the software I messed things up and just want to delete the repository and start over.

I've tried deleting the bookmark and deleting the folder (I had created a backup), but when I create a new repository of that folder it still remembers the old branches/changes and everything from the repository I thought I deleted.

How do I REALLY delete the repository?

Thanks!

Never mind. It's a git issue not a SourceTree issue.

There is a hidden directory named ".git" That stores all the repository data. When you backed up the folder, that directory would have been included.
