I am using git and have a local clone on my hard drive. How do I configure ST?

How do I configure ST without re-pulling everything? In other words, how do I tell it that D:\git is where my copies of files are?

I have been using Tortoise. but we are going to 2FA with Stash, so I guess I need to change.

I'm a complete newbie at this sort of thing, BTW.

File -> New/Clone -> Add existing local repository

Hey, it works! Thanks

For the benefit of others, you will select 'Clone/New' from the file menu and get a popup with three tabs: Clone Repository, Add Working Copy, and Create New Repository. You want Add Working Copy.

FWIW I have a folder called \git; inside it are two more. It did not see \git as a git directory, but it does see the ones inside

Thanks again!

Sounds like you might be on a slightly different version than I am, but yeah that's it.  It wouldn't see your "git" directory because it is not, itself, a git repository.  But the individual folders within it presumably are.


If my answer helped you, please "Accept" it.  Thanks!
