I'm trying to set up version control for a package development project where the project folder is stored on a secure network drive that I access from my Mac by connecting to a server using smb. I'm able to open the R project on my computer and read and write files from R over the network.
However, when I try to set up Git version control for the project (through Tools -> Project Options -> Git/SVN), when I select "git" in the "Version control system" dropdown, I get the dialog to "Confirm new git repository", but after clicking "Yes" I get "Error operation not permitted."
I'm not sure what the next step is here. How can I diagnose and resolve whatever is going wrong and get Git set up for this project?
