Hi all, how are you?. I'm new with sourcetree and I've a doubt, I'm working with a proyect in mplabx then I've created the repository there with no problem so I have my project folder with a .git folder in there. I want to create a remote repository on github to push the local repository that I've previously created but I'm worried about if creating this repository because I don't know if in the Destination Path, when I write the address of the folder where the local repository is, then I don't know if this procedure will erase the content of the local repository folder or it will even recognize the .git folder and others and its content.
Can you help me with that?
Here is the image with the remote repository creation window.
That functionality is there to create a new repository from scratch, the local copy and the remote hosted copy.
I believe what you want to do is create a new repository on the host of your choice, e.g. Bitbucket or GitHub etc, then open your local repository in Sourcetree and click the cog in the upper right of the screen to open the repository settings and add a new remote, using the URL from your remote hosted repository
Well, I'm a little bit confused here, so what I need to do is like follows?:
I'm very new to version control and I don't want to loose my work, thats why I'm asking what to others might seem obvius.
Glad you are back up and running.
If you create a new repository from scratch you can then create the new remote at the same time. But no, there is not currently the ability to create a new remote from an existing repository.
