I'm a git newbie and am having problems trying to get the latest version of a remote project:
S:\dev\prj\myprj [master]> git pull
/usr/libexec/git-core/git-sh-setup: line 266: cd: .git: No such file or directory
Unable to determine absolute path of git directory
S:\dev\prj\myprj [master]> git --exec-path
Found the solution/workaround! Hurrah!
I was (and still am) using GitHub for Windows, and occasionally it asks me to go to Windows Powershell to fix the repository because sometimes it can't do it automatically, and occasionally it would fail with the above error message.
The reason it was failing for me was not just that my project was on an encrypted drive but, more importantly, that sometimes I would start GitHub for Windows before mounting the encrypted drive (which I manually mount). Even if I then close GitHub for Windows, then mount the encrypted drive, and then relaunch GitHub for Windows it would still come back with the above error, so perhaps not everything GitHubby is being shut down when I close GitHub for Windows.
The workaround for me is to:
...in that order.
