I’m familiar with Github but still getting used to the ins and outs of it.
I’ve worked on one project with a group using Visual Studio with the GitHub extension to pull, push, and whatnot within Visual Studio. We have completed the project months ago but I want to add the project to my newly created professional GitHub account to use as my portfolio when applying for jobs. In my organization’s repository for the project, I have downloaded the zip to my desktop and extracted the files.
Now, on my professional GitHub account, I made a new repository for my completed group project. I tried dragging the extracted project folder to my repository and the error message, as stated in the title, popped up. Why was my organization’s repository able to hold those files but my newly created repository can’t? How do I go about adding my group project to my repository?
