I have just cloned a repository which worked and all the files I am expecting to see from my master branch are there. However, the repository also has another branch,
git fetch --all
git branch only shows your local branches. Use
git branch -a to show all branches. Your missing branch should be displayed then.
git checkout experimentto create a local from the remote branch and check it out. After that a simple
git branchshould also show a local branch
