Git Failed With A Fatal Error To Clone / Checkout Repository

When you use Git or GitHub, you may get one of the errors / warnings which have been written at the below, while clone or checkout repository.

Git failed with a fatal error.
unable to checkout working tree
Clone succeeded, but checkout failed.
You can inspect what was checked out with 'git status'
and retry the checkout with 'git checkout -f HEAD'
fatal: unable to checkout working tree
warning: Clone succeeded, but checkout failed
error: unable to create file (no such file or directory)

If you get one of these errors / warnings, you have often suffered from very long file path. Therefore, the solution is that if you will change your file path to the shorter one which have been tried to clone or checkout by you, you aren’t going to get warning / error anymore. What is more, you can clone and checkout remote problematic project successfully to your windows local directory.

Hope this solution is good for your problem.
