SSH Error tilde_expand: No such user \\.ssh\\id_rsa

Problem 

User tries to SSH from windows system to another server / linux and get the following error

ssh moshe@10.0.0.1
tilde_expand: No such user \\.ssh\\id_rsa

Solution

This is usually happens because of ssh misconfiguration. easiast solution to delete the entire directory ( if you dont have authrozied keys )

cd ~/.ssh

rm -rf *

If you don’t / can’t want to delete the directory

search for the host in the files inside the directory and remove the specific entries
