Git-Bash slow on Win10 – Check Your Home Dir.!

Git/Bash is extremely slow in Windows 7 x64

Found my solution in this comment:

Thanks so much, same problem for me, however I fixed it by creating an (user) environment variable called HOME, pointing to my desired home directory. If $HOME is not present, apparently git bash will default to %USERPROFILE%. After this, git bash is lightning fast. – JHH Apr 14 ’16 at 9:00
