Re: create repository - HELP (urgent)

Unless I misunderstand, it sounds like you want to set up a local Git repository. I.e. you wish to avoid using a server such as Github.

 

Git does not require a remote server: you can set up your folder A as a git repository. You will then clone that repository to folder B, make changes in folder B, and all commits and pushes will go into folder A.

 

So to set up a local Git repository, you will need to:

1. Install git

2. Perform a "git init" on your folder A (see this).

Folder A is now a git repository.

 

For folder B, you then do a "git clone <folderA>". Any changes you wish to preserve into folder A, you then do "git commit" and "git push" as normal.

 

 

Please follow-up to let us know how you made out. For good karma, mark a reply as the answer if it helped!
