Hi Magnus,

after writing my original message, I checked git init in a brand new
repository and I realized that I deleted the files myself (assuming I
was working on a different repository).

It was all my fault. Next time I will move to trash instead of delete
files. (I copied directories, because it was the fastest way of doing it.)

Many thanks for your help,
