I am quite new to git. When I type
Initialized empty Git repository in C:/Users/Ioanna/.git/
.git folder with
rm -r .git/
You have to go into your working directory (for example
cd /c/Users/Ioanna/projects/superprogram/), then perform the
git init command there.
This will create a new
.git subfolder (
/c/Users/Ioanna/projects/superprogram/.git/), which will contain the repository information and history. You can safely ignore it as long as you do not interfere with it.
