I have a project on which I created a git repository:

$ cd project  

$ git init  

$ git add .  

$ git commit  

I wanted to create a bare clone on another machine:

$ cd ..  

$ git clone --bare project  ssh://user@server:/GitRepos/project.git  

I executed the clone but did not print any answer. I logged on to the server machine and tried to see how the files are stored. The path /GitRepos was empty, so I decided to do the clone again:

$ git clone --bare project  ssh://user@server:/GitRepos/myproject.git

This time the answer was :

fatal: destination path 'ssh://user@server:/GitRepos/project.git' already exists and is not an empty directory.

But I saw that the path was empty.

What's going on here?
