  Git branches on local machine?

There is something I don't understand about Git branches.

I have some projects that have been on my hard disk for years, but have
just recently converted to Git repositories.  I want to start a branch
on one of them.  My understanding is that Git tracks changes in both the
main/master branch and the new branch.  But I only have one working copy
of the actual files in my directory.  Which branch do these files
represent, and where are the files of the other branch?  How does this
all work?
