Finally figured this one out... I gave up months ago my first go around, but gave this another go. So, in windows, you make folders when you want to put stuff into it. Sourcetree app does not allow you to create a repo in an existing folder - it has to make it itself. Super counter-intuitive design by having a windows "browse" button to find your folder AND no instruction on what it's looking for on the page. It's looking for a root folder AND you have to type in the final non-existant folder you want it to go into. It's at least a 3 year old problem that hasn't been fixed according to the internet. Made by programmers for programmers, not for the average weekend warrior.
Hi Jerry! Have you checked if that directory it's empty? You won't be able to clone a repo if the destination path already contains some data. Alternatively, you can create a new folder and try to clone it there. Can you let us know if this worked for you?
If you're still having trouble, please remember to provide the SourceTree version and OS you're using.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
