I have a PHP project under C:\...\www\stuff\... It can't be moved as it disappears from the localhost website.
I added it to git with Team and saw the recommendation to not use a local .git repository, so I let Eclipse put stuff in my %home% (like ~) directory.
After everything is set up, the entire source code directory is missing! This caused GREAT CONSTERNATION! Needless to say, alcohol was required.
A source code control system should NOT REMOVE THE SOURCE CODE!
It turned out that Eclipse/git had moved everything to a plain directory under my home directory. I've managed to keep on going by creating a Windows junction (reparse point, symbolic-link-to-directory) to fake the location of the source code.
Meanwhile, after recovery, I keep on working. But everytime I put something into git, now, I need a few shots for courage, beforehand.
