rm -r project_folder/.git - Is this right or wrong. In my local terminal, it works fine. On treehouse challenge, NOT.

In the Git Basics course, question 2 of 3 in the first challenge, I'm asked to remove the git directory from the folder. When I enter the command above ^ I'm told it fails. On my local terminal, this works, every time. What am I missing?

Never mind. I realized that in the challenge, you didn't need to use the file path, just the file to delete. Problem solved, though the question could've been structured a bit clearer. Carry on.
