Is it possible to preserve git version history for moved files when splitting a repository?

I saw this question, but the answer does not discuss preserving the history of files that have been moved prior to the splitting of the first repository.

I have a working directory that I track with GIT on one of my computers and at some point in the past I created a remote (bare) repo on an external hard drive. This remote is called origin. I then cloned that repo on other computers at a later time. Since I created origin, I […]

Does cf push respect the use of .gitignore?

I’ve done a couple commits in “somedir” and have been continuously rebasing while I worked—my history is linear. Now I wish I hadn’t done my work in “somedir”, but in a separate copy.
