Hi @tancs ,

Welcome to the community!

Just follow the steps below, I hope it will solve your issue.

 C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree and remove the passwd file.


Once this file is removed, restart SourceTree and execute a fetch or something else that requires access to the repo in question. SourceTree will then prompt you for your password, rewriting the cached credentials.


If you're a macOS user "you can find the password files per repo it in ~/Library/Application Support/SourceTree"
