First of all, congrats, that's a great product, really advanced and user friendly.
I was wondering if sourcetree supports spare checkouts as one of my repo has one but sourcetree doesn't seem to take it in account, everything is shown, I would expect it to show only what has been filtered by the spare config.
One more point, I'm on windows and in the panel "Working Copy Changes", if I do a CTRL+A to select all files, I can't unselect them after, even with the mouse, is there a special way to do that.
Glad you like SourceTree!
We don't support sparse-checkout at this time, although I'd expect git commands that are supposed to take it into account to obey any existing configuration. It's not something I've come across before - sparse checkouts were more useful in SVN when they actually saved you network bandwidth and a lot of disk space, but since Git has all the file changes in the repo anyway (and you don't have a choice about that), it didn't really seem that useful. You're the first person to ask about it, and I had to look it up to remind myself :)
There are a few foibles about the grid control that powers the file status panel right now, I've logged this. It's a very useful MS control but it does have a few little edge cases like this, I may end up switching it out for something else if I can't resolve it.
Unless there's another solution to the following, I agree to this feature being valuable:
Specifically talking about Unity, most git repositories are based on the root of a Unity Projects. That means all the basic project folders would be duplicates when trying to pull such a project into an existing one. Since those projects mostly get unique from Assets/<SDKName> it would be great if one could keep one version of the project relevant folders and just pull in the structure from SDKName on.
+1 we would like this feature
Working on a huge data reposisory ~300GB with both lfs and sparse-checkout it means that the folders I don't checkout are NOT downloaded.
All the team working from home because of the covid, bandwidth really matter.
For now, doing this sparse-checkout on the console.
