Unknown error when I commit something


I am facing a problem that when I try to commit I get that error:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks -c credential.helper= -c credential.helper="C:/Users/*****/AppData/Local/ATLASS~1/SOURCE~1/GIT_EX~1/GIT-CR~1.EXE" commit -q -F C:\Users\*****\AppData\Local\Temp\gagvnqh4.yk4


any help would be appreciated.

The one you have posted up is just the git command Sourcetree calls when running a commit, not a push. Does that commit succeed or is there more error messages after that?

We're you trying to do a commit + push ?

Hi Michael Minns

thanks for your replay

i wanted to say "commit" not "push" that's my fault

so sourceTree showed me this line then all my files after that, i didn't find any exception.

OK, so that message isn't an error, it is just the expected message.

What state is your repository in before or after that? I can't see a problem at the moment.

I deleted some folder from my repository , then i succeed to commit

But i don't understand why sourceTree don't accept him

Can you explain more, what files you had to start with, what you then did to them, e.g. deleted, and then what you expected to happen when you committed and what actually happened?

Also are you using a staging/un-staging view of the files to be committed?
