This is somewhat confusing to me as to what you really want. Do you want a
"bare repository" on your Z: drive? This means you & your subordinates
would need to "git clone" to create their own copy (working directory). Or
do you actually want to have the ".git" subdirectory for your (and other
users') c:\mydir to reside on the Z: drive instead of being a subdirectory
(folder to Windows types) in c:\mydir? The first case is simply "git init
--bare --shared z:\repodir" to create a bare repository which you and
others can then "git clone z:\repodir" followed by "git push" to update.
This is what I am used to doing. If the later, look at "git init
--separate-git-dir z:\repodir". I really don't know if this latter will
work if multiple people need up update it (which is what I think a "git
add" or "git commit" will do). Perhaps one of the true experts will comment
on having a "shared" git index setup of this sort. Personally, I go with
"be afraid! Be very, very afraid!" in this latter case. I don't think git
is designed to allow sharing of an index folder on a CIFS (Windows share)
shared directory. But I've been wrong in the past. Well, it's 02:25 and I
need to try to get back to sleep, if I just could.

There is nothing more pleasant than traveling and meeting new people!
