Git Question

git clone from another directory

I am trying to clone repo from another directory.

Lets say I have one repo in

C:/folder1
and
C:/folder2


I want to clone the work in
folder1
into
folder2
.

What would I type into the command prompt to do this?

It seems that often when cloning a URL is provided rather then a file path, however, at this moment I am just practicing and trying to get use to Git.

Answer
cd /d c:\
git clone C:\folder1 folder2

From the documentation for git clone:

For local repositories, also supported by git natively, the following syntaxes may be used:

/path/to/repo.git/

file:///path/to/repo.git/

These two syntaxes are mostly equivalent, except the former implies --local option.
