Two days ago my mbp just died and I need to erase and reinstall.
I use git for some Rails projects. As far as I remember all the
projects where pushed to remote repositories in Heroku so I think the
changes are there safe. One of the projects has 2 branches and each
branch was pushed to a different repository.
Also just in case I had access to the broken drive and managed to copy
the projects to a USB stick.
1- Do the copies I have on the USB contain all the stuff, including
branches? My guess is they do but just want to double check before
2- In any case I guess that cloning from the remote repositories would
restore my local system as it was. But regarding the one that has 2
branches would the clone from one remote repository contain the
details about the other branch? My guess is yes again.
Could someone confirm?
