Clone Repository

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi All,


I have successfully cloned one repository using 'git clone <repo_url>'.


When i was tring to clone the same repo again, geting below error message :

fatal : destination path <repo_name> already exists and is not an empty directory.


Now my question is, do i need to remove the local repository (directory) before cloning that same repo once again?


Thanks with Regards,

Re: Clone Repository

Hi @Jayantadeb73

You could use:
git clone <url-link> <name-repo>

With this you can rename the cloned repository with new name.

Hope this help
