  • GitHub Extension for Visual Studio version: 2.5.3
  1. Open .git/config file
  2. It contains lots of entries like this:
[remote "github-ffe0a8a2-195f-40ad-bbd7-87f177220113"]
[remote "github-f4ce5665-074b-498d-a649-a9e2ad0d7199"]
[remote "github-9dade18f-1ea3-4c4f-8351-e6bfad54068a"]
[remote "github-cb1ef5c0-982b-4f9b-8225-570b8eb8c5f3"]
[remote "github-583affcd-7f20-4f01-af4a-fef67096ea87"]
[remote "github-5836ea7f-d9ec-4cb9-9802-54030d93f04d"]
[remote "github-68704ccc-9561-4178-b2b3-1c85c57d7f79"]
[remote "github-2e563518-2ecd-4569-958b-5adc3cd321d7"]

These are empty (and from what I can work out) un-deletable entries. 😢

There were also some non-empty entries like this:

[remote "github-bf5109bc-1ea6-41a5-bd86-835817569188"]
	url =
	fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/github-bf5109bc-1ea6-41a5-bd86-835817569188/*
[remote "github-ff433f39-7353-4149-94a9-e9c852c25c5d"]
	url =
	fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/github-ff433f39-7353-4149-94a9-e9c852c25c5d/*
[remote "github-a4de04c9-4b95-46c0-bb8b-8086f4ecc6bb"]
	url =
	fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/github-a4de04c9-4b95-46c0-bb8b-8086f4ecc6bb/*
