Issue with file change recognition in VS code

I have Git enabled within VS code and have a remote setup which is linked to my Github repo. When I make changes to any of the files within the client app, in the source control it shows that the client directory has been updated rather than the individual files within the client directory. This means that I am unable to stage, commit or push the changes made. See image of source control section below:

When trying to open the changes from the ‘client’ entry under ‘changes’ I receive the following error message:


Why is it not just adding the changes to the individual files and showing just changes to the directory?

Hey @PNBailey! I was just curious if you are still experiencing these issues. If so, could you post the output of git status while it’s happening? It’ll give a bit more insight in what Git thinks.
