      Could mirror them in a few steps:

      Create new VSTS/VSO repo
      Get path
      git remote add seconrepository alt-machine:/path/to/repo
      Git push -f secondrepository master

        Looks great! is this actually a solution to mirroring of GitHub and VSTS or a new question? I just didn’t try that since I am new to git and scared of making some irreversible changes to my code. Thanks.

      Thank you so much.. your articles are the best in solving issues .. they’re exactly what a user looks for and cannot find in official blogs or documentation.

      BTW, is there any way to have local repo connected to both GitHub and VSTS simultaneously?

      1. esteban

        Yes, you can add multiple remotes: https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Basics-Working-with-Remotes
