I can't clone a repository to a Google Drive folder

I'm trying to clone a repository to my local Mac and I have all my workspace settled into Google Drive (sync locally).

If I try to clone a repository inside a Google Drive folder, Sourcetree says: "It's impossible to run a clone in an unempty folder."

But the folder is empty!

Do you know this behavior? Is there a way to avoid this issue?

Thank you very much

Maybe the folder contains hidden files?

Pressing down Command + Shift + Period in the file system of Mac OS will hide or show invisible files. Could you try?

Hi, thank you for your suggestion. Effectively there was an hidden file: icon?

I have erased, but however I'm not able to clone a repository inside this folder. The message is the same, it say that it's impossible to clone inside an unempty folder.

Is there a way to work with Sourcetree and Google Drive folders?

Thank you
