I just zip my gogs-repositories and my data is gone?

please provide your Gogs version, system, database.
system: gnu/linuxubuntu 20.04
database: mariadb 10.5
Gogs: 0.12.3 version

If it’s a bug, try to reproduce on https://try.gogs.io, if you can’t, please upgrade to latest release first.
this is not a bug, this is me being naive :frowning:

the problem is that I did not use ./gogs backup I did not know that and just zip gogs-repositories directory.
data doesn’t appear on Web Interface and when I cd to /home/git/gogs-repositories/my_user/my_repo and type git status this error appear fatal: this operation must be run in a work tree
what should I do ?!
