I am just trying to open a local repository since I have moved it on my local computer, or for whatever reason it's not in the local repositories history in my sourcetree.
So I go to file open and select that folder that has the .git hidden folder as a first-level child, that seems to open and be connected to the remote repository just fine...
My two issues from here are that because I always use the folder name "current" to distinguish the live folder from other archive folders in my windows folder structure within each client folder, the tab says "Current" in Sourcetree if I open it this way, so I need to rename that to the client name. But for whatever reason neither the client name nor the word "current" appear in the recent local repositories, which as I understand is the only place I can go to rename the project tab? So if I close "current" in source-tree, why can I not find it in sourcetree later? How can I rename my project if I open from a local folder? Am I opening the correct folder?
