Junction (hardlink) in git repository showing as modified


#1

Hi All,

I created junctions in my repository so that the files can live elsewhere, which seems to work just fine on the git side. But, the Atom tree-view is showing the directory/files as changed even though the git repository reports no changes. Any ideas why this might be? I’ve tried restarting the editor but that doesn’t fix it.

Thanks,
Bryan

Have you followed the suggestions in the Debugging document? Also, could you give the following information?

  • Which version of Atom are you using? (Please give the exact version number. At any one time, there are three different “latest versions” of Atom.)
  • What OS and version are you running?
  • Can you reproduce the issue after completely exiting Atom and restarting using atom --safe?

Hi @leedohm,

To answer your questions:

  1. 1.12.9
  2. Windows 8.1 Enterprise
  3. Yes, the issue remains after running with the --safe option.

I took a look at the debugging docs and one of the suggestions was to clear window state. I did this and after reloading atom the original issue still persists.

Thanks,
Bryan
