Odd Issue with New Repo

So I’m trying to create a new repository for my project on github, but whenever I try to connect my local folder it says remote origin already exists… I’ve tried got remote rm origin…it works and I create a new repository linked to the folder… it instead of saving the files from the selected folder it saves files from a folder from 3 months ago. I’m not sure what to do

I’m not sure I understand what exactly you’re doing. Can you describe step-by-step exactly what you did, what you expected to happen, and what actually happened instead?
