Cannot fetch or pull on Sourcetree for windows

When trying to fetch or pull from my remote in sourcetree, if comes up with the error:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks fetch origin
remote: HTTP Basic: Access denied
fatal: Authentication failed for "[my remote]"


I don't know why it is doing this as I have the proper gitlab access and this hasn't been an issue previously. Under settings/authentication, it keeps asking me to authenticate my log in everytime I open this. I have tried re cloning my remote but it keeps coming up with authentication errors and the credential pop up does not appear

I have the same problem ! :(

I have a solution now :

I got the help of this answer:

Me, I went into the windows file explorer, and noted in the search bar "Sourcetree", and chose the "Sourcetree" folder with this path "C: \ Users \ CS \ AppData \ Local \ Atlassian".
