.dir folders are created when you move content from crx to eclipse or local file system. 

Ideally these files should not be committed. Better add that pattern in git.ignore  ,so that it will not even ask for commit.

 git config --system core.longpaths true . Normally whenever I faced this issue, running the above command helped
