I'm not really a Windows person. I use Linux for my development. I use
Windows at work, but only as a "regular user". I don't know how you do a
"git clone" using the products you mentioned. But on a Linux command line,
I can do something like:

I don't know how those Windows products interface with git.

git clone --separate-git-dir /NAS-box/${LOGNAME}/${repository} <some git
repository>

At work, I have a C: drive and an I: drive. The latter is the standard for
everyone and is their personal LAN share. So, perhaps a command like:

git clone --separate-git-dir i:/git-for-project-1 <project 1 repository URL>

On Linux, this creates a .git _file_ (not directory) which simply contains
the name of the directory which has the stuff which is normally in the .git
subdirectory.
