Git Repo Changes Issue

I am trying to clone a repository into VS Code and work on the project. The files cloned fine; however, when I look at the change history, it gives me a warning: “The git repository at Users/attu” has too many active changes…" How do I revert VS Code from connecting to my entire computer rather than just my project?

Since it seems that Git is functioning fine and that the error is inside VSCode, you may want to take a look at VSCode’s support resources.
