I'm new with use of Git in Visual Studio.

I've created a repository in my web space and syncronization seems to work correctly. What I'm not able to configure is the exclusion of some folders from commits operations.
In VS ide I've found the Git Settings panel divided in Global Settings and Repository Settings. The first contains my credentials and the second one has two files called .gitignore and .gitattributes. I've attached .gitignore. The last two lines of the file contains folders to exclude. Every time I commit Installazioni and Simboli folders are included and i have to exclude manually. Someone can help me?

Were the Insallazioni and Simboli folders added earlier? If yes, the .gitignore does not apply to them.

It's possible. However is there a method to ignore these files?

Thank you

You can tell git to forget it as if it was never added. For that, you can use a form of git rm command with --cache argument -- see http://git-scm.com/docs/git-rm . The command
git rm -r --cache Installazioni

Open in new window

without --cache would remove the directory physically. However, with --cache it will remove the directory only from the observed ones (cached, in index). The -r stands for recursive (that is also subdirectories.

Once removed from the index, the .gitignore will tell git to ignore the directory.
