I am testing out Git LFS and have a test local Git repo which was setup with Git LFS. Then I tried to use SourceTree to git clone the local Git LFS enabled repo to a new local Git repo but it failed to clone. I suspect it's because the destination local Git repo hasn't got Git LFS installed ?
So how does one locally clone local Git LFS enabled repos ?
I am having a very similar issue and have yet to find a solution. I created a test repository, initialized LFS, and added the large file types I want to track (in my case, *.umap and *.uasset). All seems will with that repository.
Cloning that repository fails...Select "Clone/New", enter source and destination path info in the "Clone Repository" dialog, then select "Clone". SourceTree does some work cloning all non-LFS files (I assume). Then I am presented with a dialog titled "Run 'git lfs pull' now?". The text of that dialog is:
"The repository <my cloned repo's name> is using Git LFS but it appears the binary file content hasn't been downloaded yet. Do you want to download the LFS files required by your current checkout?"
I answer "Yes", then I see the "Downloading Git LFS file content" status dialog. Problem is, it never finishes, the progress dialog never goes away.
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 ...
