In a git repository created using the –separate-git-dir option executing “git status” is not showing any changes. This was working correctly for weeks.
I created a new file in the top level folder, it doesn’t show as untracked. Tried “git status -u -v”. Nothing. Removed the .gitignore file. Nothing. Strange.
The separate directory is on a shared drive in Windows with a connected drive “k:”.
“git fsck” shows no issue, etc.
Anyway, what I did. I deleted the .git file. Then I reinited:
Now it works.
OS: Windows 7, 64bit.
