I am working on a project and I am creating the initial version by adding the base files. The problem comes when I try to add all the files in the folder (I previously created the file .gitignore with the corresponding) with the command
git add *
It takes a few seconds to show the indicated error
bash: /mingw64/bin/git: Argument list too long
It's the first time it happens to me and if I add files more specifically it does not happen.
Data from my system:
- windows 7 professional x64 service pack 1 original
- Core i5
- 4gb of ram
- git 2.16.2
Most of the files, at least 98% have no extension, but still using the following error
git add *.
If I put the name of the file or the initial does not happen:
git add O*
