Unable to checkout working tree

Hey Guys!

My problem is when I'm trying to clone repository to my computer, I got this error message. I don't know why but I got "Permisson denied" error message as well. I checked the file names and there is no illegal word for Windows (at the end of the file) like ? < : .

Hello! This looks like it could be a problem with anti-virus preventing the file creation, or the file path miiiight be too long -- have you seen issues like this before?


As a work around, you can also try to use the command-line and copy-paste the first line of that output into your console (you'll need git-for-windows installed first!).


I havent seen this issue before , this is my new laptop.

Its could be the anti-virus, I have Symantec Endpoint Protection on my laptop.

I tried it on console as well, the same problem occured.
