Git configuration are stored in plain text files, in these three places: * The system configuration (usually, /etc/gitconfig); * The global configuraion (usually, ~/.gitconfig); * The per-repo configuration, <repo>/.git/config So I would say the breakage you observed was caused by some other reason than partition resizing. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
