Is it your Github repository? Where is your folder that you want to sync, and where is the source folder? Could you describe the situation better?

pepr, thanks for responding.

My issue was with copying/pasting files into the wrong folder. It started off wrong when I downloaded the files (via terminal on a Mac OS X machine) in a different place than my current working directory.

Then after I resolved that, I was able to complete the remaining steps like fork, commit, pull request, etc.

I was able to solve my own issue. Syncing in github like any similar tool requires precision, designating the correct folder and following the steps in order. I would highly recommend using github desktop.
