Git setup failed for project stored on a secure network drive

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?

Shared drive permissions and pathnames tend to be squarely in my experience. My instinct would be to create the project outside of RStudio, then open it a a new Rproj as an existing folder.

Thanks Richard. I'll give that a try and report back.
