Gitlab created a duplicate folder, not in local repo, how to delete it

I have zero concept how this happened. I use visual studio and only push, yet somehow it pushed two of the same project and i don’t have that locally and cannot replicate it locally and am unable to delete the duplicate folder in the repo…

My local dir

Visual Studio

How do i fix this?

TIA, mike

ok, i figured it out. one can drill down in the project on the website and delete the files in it one at a time, and once the last file is gone the directory is removed. but then syncing back to the local recreated things.

it took a bit of back-and-forth of renaming files and pushing again to get the files correct (it wanted to create dupes again).

not sure how this happened, but was a royal nuisance/bug.
