Because my development machine has a tiny drive, I need to conserve drive space whenever I can. Is there any way to remove a local repository that I am not currently using from the local drive without removing it from the remote site (I'm using GitLab, so I don't want to remove it from GitLab, only from my local machine)? Thanks!
Just delete the repository locally, it will not affect your remote repository. Just make sure that before you delete it, that you have pushed all your commits to the remote. In SourceTree you just right-click on the repository bookmark and delete it, and it will ask if you want to delete just the bookmark or also the repository. Note that it will leave the .git directory, so you will have to manually remove that.
While I was trying to import the repo to Eclipse, had the same issue, searching online came across this post. downloaded SourceTree, I thought I was deleting the one causing the issue, now it seems like I deleted everything else but the troubled branch.
Is there a way to get it back?
If someone can help me with this, I'd really appreciate it.
Thank you so much!!
Your local repository and your remote repository are equal.
You may delete local repository and this not make any change in you remote repository.
use git command for get remote repo,
add remote repo for your local repo
or delete link to your remote repo
git remote -v git remote add git remote rm
