I've just started using git in Vista, with my repository under
(and this won't probably affect you directly, I only mention those reasons here for completeness' sake.):
GIT_INDEX_FILEusing within a
filter-branchcommand for instance, see this thread), so, obviously, don't rename the root directory while performing a complex operation on your repo.
Plus, a "windows copy" (instead of a
git clone), will copy everything including hooks, which may include absolute path in their script if you have edited them and made those kind of modification.
