If you are working on Windows operation system and try to connect to bare git repository located on network drive, you can possible get the following error:
ashapovalov@MW100604 /c/tfs/Develop (master) $ git push -u origin master fatal: '\mw100604\resonate.git' does not appear to be a git repository fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
So, let's start for the beginning. I have a bare git repository located there:
It is a network drive, so in the beginning of path I have \\ In my source code folder I initialized git
ashapovalov@MW100604 /c/tfs/Develop (master) $ git init Initialized empty Git repository in c:/tfs/Develop/.git/
and add network path to git bare repository
ashapovalov@MW100604 /c/tfs/Develop (master) $ git remote add origin '\\mw100604\resonate.git'
But when I try to push I got an error message which I showed in the beginnig of the post. The reason is simple: double slash are replaced to single in git, which probably is easy to spot for unix developer, but not for Windows developer :) To fix it just change back slash to slash
$ git remote add origin '//mw100604/resonate.git'
Now you will be able to successfuly push your changes to git bare repository.
