Git hangs while unpacking objects (Windows)14 Oct 2014 - 1 min to read
I’m not sure if this is because we’re behind a proxy, the network has issues or my work laptop isn’t great, but for some reason the git clones very often hang during the unpacking of objects.
There is a way to recover this, if you
Ctrl+C to exit the git command then
cd into the folder cloned into.
The bit we’re interested in is the dangling commit, if we merge this commit manually all will be fine
Job done, you should now have the completed clone.
