# [git-users] added file with absolute path, how to fix?

I somehow managed to add a file with an absolute path (c:\foo\bar
\file.c) to my repository (in c:\foo).  When I do a "git ls-files",
this file shows up with its absolute path (as compared to all the
other files, which correctly show the path relative to the
repository).

If I do a "git rm c:\foo\bar\file.c", I get an error saying that the
file is outside the repository.

I finally did a "git rm bar\file.c" and this seems to work; "git ls-
files" no longer shows the file.  However, when I clone the repository
and go a "git ls-files", I can once again see the file (c:\foo\bar
\file.c).

How do I get rid of this absolute path?

Thanks...
