Setting Up the Repositories

Create local copies of the remote repositories

As we saw, files for the Nineteenth-Century Knowledge Project are stored in three different repositories.

  • One of these, archive, is stored locally on an external hard disk drive, so you need to connect it to your computer to access those files.
  • The kp1 and kp2 repos are stored in the cloud, and we use two different program to synchonize them.
  1. On the D: drive, create a knowledge-project folder in the root directory.
  2. Create an empty kp2 folder inside it. Ignore the kp1 folder for the moment.
