Every time I clone a respository hosted on GitHub to my local IDE environment, there are random files missing (nothing exotic; these are very basic files like .html and .css and image files). Inspection of the actual directory on my computer shows these files missing.
If I trash the directory and re-clone the same respository, a different selection of random files will be missing each time. It's never the same combination twice.
This issue has been plaguing me for a couple weeks now, and affects any and every repository I fork and clone.
Eventually, I give up trying to get a complete clone, and download a zip of the repository and manually backfill the missing files into the local directory so I can proceed with my lesson.
I'm fairly new to this and I realize that there are many variables involved, however I thought I would start here in case this is an issue that others have encountered (and easily resolved). Thank you!
What tool are you using to clone the repository? Can you give us the exact steps you follow to reproduce the problem?
