Hi You need to upgrade you Git install, either by upgrading the bundled Git version in Sourcetree in the tools/options/git tab.

Or by installing git independently and configuring Sourcetree to use it in the tools/options/git tab as a System Git install.

We'd recommend using Sourcetree 3.0.12 and/or Git 2.19.2
