I'm burning my stuff on a dvd, before a quick reinstall. Never done that with git, being a recent user. So I'm just checking with you guys. If I understood correctly, I just need to backup my project directory project_name (which has .git inside it) watching for hidden files along with it, and when I copy it onto the "new" machine, and install git again, I resume like nothing happened ? Correct ?
yep. that's right.
