how do i backup a git repos with history to a different disk on a
i have a folder with a bunch of git repos, when i copy a repos to an
external disk by running the unix command 'cp -r', then git status
shows that all files have been modified even though i see the fetch-
url and the 'git log'. if i do the same thing on the same disk it
i tried using the 'checkout-index -a' command but it does not preserve
the history. same issue with 'git archive --format=tar master' and we
have to specify the branch name.
