I've created a network drive for my locally hosted website, and I'm 
managing all my files directly on the network drive. And I'm using that 
network drive as a local git repo. So, if I make any changes to a file 
there, I'd also want to be able to push it my my remote git repo. But when 
I start to do that, its gives me so many errors. Sometimes, it fails to 
check the status, sometimes gives errors such as

1. "fatal: index file smaller than expected"
2. "fatal: Unable to create 
'Y:/demo.dotcms.com/demos/tstgit/.git/index.lock': File exists."
3. "error: update_ref failed for ref 'HEAD': cannot lock ref 'HEAD': Unable 
to create 'Y:/demo.dotcms.com/demos/tstgit/.git/refs/heads/master.lock': 
File exists."
4. "error: update_ref failed for ref 'refs/remotes/origin/master': cannot 
lock ref 'refs/remotes/origin/master': Unable to create 
Y:/demo.dotcms.com/demos/tstgit/.git/refs/remotes/origin/master.lock': File 

I've googled and followed every direction I could in:
1. http://codybonney.com/fixing-fatal-index-file-smaller-than-expected-error/
3. http://vertis.io/2012/01/24/git-fatal-index-file-smaller-than-expected.html
4. https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREE-2018

But I'm still getting these issues.
However, when I try to check status, stage, commit, push, everything seems 
to work fine when I do it from my local drive. But I get these errors only 
when working from network drive.
Please help.
