Getting rid of a phantom repository!

I deleted a repository in my GitHub account, as well as the corresponding folder in the file system on my Windows computer. However, when I run the “git status” command, it still displays statistics about the deleted repository!?

$ git status
On branch master

I checked the directory, and the .git directory does not exist. I’m guessing that git is getting this information from somewhere else.

Hi @babyboomer53,

Did you make sure to check for hidden files in your local directory or perhaps the directory above? If there is no .git folder, you should receive a “not a git repository” error.
