I have a repo (origin) on a USB key that I cloned on my hard drive (local). I moved "origin" to a NAS and successfully tested cloning it from here.
I would like to know if I can change the URI of "origin" in the settings of "local" so it will now pull from the NAS, and not from the USB key.
For now, I can see two solutions:
push everything to the USB origin, and copy it to the NAS again (implies a lot of work due to new commits to NAS origin);
add a new remote to "local" and delete the old one (I fear I'll break my history).
git remote set-url origin new.git.url/here
git help remote. You also can edit
.git/config and change the URLs there.
You're not in any danger of losing history unless you do something very silly (and if you're worried, just make a copy of your repo, since your repo is your history.)
