Problem when cloning a distant repository from Bitbucket


I have cloned a distant repository via sourcetree. Everything seems in order, except two things:

-in my local copy of the folder, .csv files are all empty. Altough I can open them from Sourcetree, this seems weird.

-Altough I have not made any work on the files yet, I have 18 files "waiting" to be commited. How can it be?

Thanks in advance for helping a beginner.

I don't know about the empty CSV files, it would depend on what they look like on the remote and to other users.

However the 18 files waiting could be due to white space  changes, e.g. checking out files with Unix new lines which are being converted to Windows new lines.

Try this doc from our competitors ;)  it gives a good explanation
