I have below message when I download the folder of the labs:

D:>git clone DP500

Cloning into 'DP500'...

Username for '': Student

Password for '':

remote: Support for password authentication was removed on August 13, 2021.

    Hi David Huang,

    Thank you for reaching out to Microsoft Q & A forum.   

    It appears there are two issues preventing you from downloading the folder of labs: the repository name and the authentication method. Here’s how to resolve both: 

    Correcting the Repository Name: 

    First, ensure that the repository name is correct. The correct name is DP500-Azure-Data-Analyst (with a capital "A" in "Analyst"). 

    Updating the Authentication Method: 

    GitHub no longer supports password authentication for Git operations. Instead, you need to use a Personal Access Token (PAT). Here are the steps to do that: 

    1.Generate a Personal Access Token (PAT): 

    Visit GitHub's PAT settings page

    Click on "Generate new token". 

    Provide a descriptive name for your token, select the repo scope, and generate the token. 

    Copy the token and store it securely, as you will not be able to see it again. 

    2.Clone the Repository Using the PAT: 

    open your terminal or command prompt. 

    Use the following command to clone the repository, replacing YOUR_PERSONAL_ACCESS_TOKEN with the token you generated: 

    git clone DP500

    Alternative: Using SSH 

    If you prefer using SSH, you can set up an SSH key by following these steps: 

    Follow GitHub's guide to generate a new SSH key

    Add the SSH key to your GitHub account. 

    Use the following command to clone the repository: 

    git clone DP500

    By following these instructions, you should be able to clone the repository successfully. 

    Note: Please remember to avoid sharing your personal information, such as passwords, on public platforms. 

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.
