Unable to clone the whole repository

When I try to clone a repository from the web version of Github and unzip the file, there’s a very high possibility that some files are missing for some unknown reasons, especially when the repository contains multiple levels of folders and some of them are empty. 

Hi @njchensl,

Thanks for being part of the GitHub Community Forum. I’ll help as best I can.

…there’s a very high possibility that some files are missing…

When you say “high possibility” do you mean that you’re just worried some files are missing, or have you confirmed that the files are missing? If you haven’t confirmed the files are missing, it would be helpful to know what you’re seeing in order to further troubleshoot.

Is the repository you’re trying to clone public? If so, can you share a link to it? It could be helpful to see the repository you’re working with to better help.
