Cloning a large repository with ~4gb of LFS files is incredibly slow on windows (sourcetree 2.3.5). There are ~10k files, being pulled from a central repo on the network.
If I perform `git lfs fetch` from the command line or do a clone in OSX sourcetree it gathers all LFS files in about 10-15 minutes. In comparison souretree on windows took 25 minutes to just get to 15% of files (an order of magnitude slower). Also looking at the output it seems like osx is doing a `git lfs fetch` in the background (can see a summary printed in the command line), whilst windows seems to be doing an operation on every single file. (every single file spawns and logs an entry in the progress window). My understanding is that sourcetree should skip filter smudge when it clones, but it seems this might not be the case on windows?
From the progress window in sourcetree for windows:
git -c filter.lfs.smudge= -c filter.lfs.required=false -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false clone --branch master ...
Not quite sure how to interpret if this is correct
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
