I love my GitBash window because it helps maintain the illusion that I am not on Windows 7. I can type
ls /c/ and see
C:/. This has worked fine for me. Now I would like to create a git backup on an external drive that is not underneath C:. I plug in the drive, Windows assigned it "G:" but now, how do I tell Mingw32 to know about it?
I'd like to use
$ git remote add backup /tmp/backup from this excellent answer but change
$ git remote add backup /G/myrepo ... $ git push backup fatal: 'C:/prog/Git/G/myrepo' does not appear to be a git repository fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
I'm not sure what information is useful.
$ git --version git version 184.108.40.206.msysgit.0 $ ls G: ls: G:: No such file or directory
