Remove a Repository From a VSCode Multi-Root Workspace

Removing a folder from a multi-root workspace does not remove the associated git repo from SCM view. I’ve reported this already as an issue in the VSCode project:

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create a multi-root workspace:

    * folder_A contains git-repo A
    * folder_B contains git-repo B

    SCM pane shows repo A and repo B

2.  Remove folder_B

    SCM pane still shows repo B (expected: repo B is automatically closed/removed)

3. Select "close repo" on repo B

    repo B vanishes from SCM pane

4. reopen workspace

    SCM pane again shows repo B (expected: repo B does no longer show up)

As a workaround you can search and delete the workspace settings under C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Code\User\workspaceStorage.
