So with the desktop, I’ve cloned a repo onto my local drive. There is the master branch and a working branch. As its all new the master branch has a readme only, the working branch has a couple of files (plus a .gitignore)
The local and remote repos are the same except for one file in the local which has an edit. This has been committed to the local repo in the working branch, but not pushed to the remote or the local copy of the master branch.
In the desktop GUI I can switch between branches, when I do in windows explorer I can see the files appear and disappear.
My question is, where do my files go to/come from? Presumably the desktop has cached them somewhere? I know they aren’t being fetched from the remote repo as when I switch to the working branch, I get the file with the edit.
I was presuming (before I started to use GH) that the separate branches would be visible in the windows folder I’ve cloned the repo to.
Thanks, as you can tell, total newbie (but already discovered a bug switching branches)
