Git, in itself, doesn't support authentication/authorization, or users in any sense. There are, however, several applications that can do it for you, the most known may be gitolite.

All the git repositories are on one git server in specific directory.
I would like to know what I need to backup in order to be able to make a success restore, in case my disk on the git server will crushed.

I would like to understand, after the user run on his local workstation 'git init / add / commit / push' all the information was copied to the git server and the local directory in the local workstation can be removed?

I can see somehow the name of the files and their content in the git repository that saved on the git server?

If I create a git repo for multiple projects, for example ALL projects that my team works on, when they clone and pull, do they have to download all the files? Can they sort of selectively download the files they may want to read or work on?
The idea is I want to track a bunch of projects for my team ... so i was thinking to make a repo that contains something like this:


Then the entire team can contribute to any of the projects they may be working on, but they should not have to download every single file when they clone .. is that possible?
Basically I do not want to have to create a repo for every single project .. is that what people normally do?
