Can I use Source Tree (Mac) for another system?


I have Mac OS with the newest version of Source Tree and Windows 10, virtualized through Parallels. Can I use Source Tree for Mac to add repository from Win? 

I tried it but you can see the result at the picture below.

Thank you for any advice!

Hi Michal, can you make sure that .git is present in that directory? If it's not, you can initialize it as a repository by typing git init into your command line. 

Let us know if that was your case!
