I renamed a deprecated folder that i needed the code for, added ".old"
to name. I then pushed to the repository and the original folder and
the newly renamed are now in the repository and on my local branch.

I renamed 'autoflow' to 'autoflow.old' and worked away ok. But after
the push I now have both of the folders with duplicate files.

The 'autoflow' folder that has appeared is also from an earlier push
this morning 1038 its now 1727

No idea how to as its the first time I've seen this. But the output
from the push is:
 git push origin autoflow

   8ea3cd9..7e6ff4f  autoflow -> autoflow

The only suggestion I can think of is that the name wasn't cleared
after the "git add *" and then git went looking for an earlier copy.
But seems the issue is with the git client as well because of the
modified time. If it were pulled then the modified time would've
changed, so it must have been taken from an earlier commit on my local
