Converting local SVN checkout to Git

I have checked out the source from my old svn server but we are migrating to git. I don't have a version of SVN running on my machine. I want to clone what I have using Git svn clone but i am getting a bad url passed to ra layer error message.

Do I need to have svn running on my local machine to do this?

Should i just add the files to a repo and commit them that way ignoring all of the data that would be stored from using git svn clone?

Thanks for all of the advice

Can't create session: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'file:///H:/DigitalFly/DigitalFly': Unable to open repository 'file:///H:/DigitalFly/DigitalFly' at /mingw32/share/perl5/site_perl/Git/SVN.pm line 148.

Bad URL passed to RA layer: Illegal repository URL 'H:\DigitalFly\DigitalFly' at /mingw32/share/perl5/site_perl/Git/SVN.pm line 148.

Answer
  • You can't clone Working Copy, only real repository
  • For repository on local FS (when you'll have it) you have to use file:/// URL
