      We just recently implemented Git for our projects. Working locally within the App Explorer I'm trying to make changes and then commit and push. About 90% of the time after making changes and trying to perform git operations I get the below message.

      fatal: Unable to create 'c:/wamp/www/website/.git/index.lock': File exists.

      If no other git process is currently running, this probably means a
      git process crashed in this repository earlier. Make sure no other git
      process is running and remove the file manually to continue.

      If I look down at the bottom toolbar it is constantly Refreshing the workspace which I assume is creating this lock. I have to wait for it to finish or catch it waiting to do another refresh.
