Commit failed after the company changed server - windows 10

Dear all,

I'm very new to git and I only used Sourcetree for this purpose. 

Recently our server at work has been changed. Before we used a simple NAS drive, now there is a regular server. My Git repo changed the address and this is what I also updated in my sourcetree. And commit worked for a week or so, but today I have this message:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks -c credential.helper= -c credential.helper="C:/Users/awozniak/AppData/Local/Atlassian/SourceTree/git_extras/git-credential-manager.exe" commit -q -F C:\Users\awozniak\AppData\Local\Temp\1fwwoora.nkv -a
fatal: fsync error on 'sha1 file': Bad file descriptor
Completed with errors, see above.

I have already updated Sourcetree, since I found on some forum it could be problem with an old version, but it didn't help. I have version 3.2.6 and Windows 10.

Which I do not understand at all. I can't commit any code.

If anyone knows what is wrong, I would be grateful for help.

Hello! Sounds like there's something corrupted with the repo itself. Can you commit from the command line? If you run the following command does it work?

git commit -a


You can run commands manually by opening the repo and clicking "Terminal" If that doesn't work, you'll probably need to delete and re-clone the repository.

Thanks for your answer.

It worked for a while, so I didn't reply anything, but now I have this problem again. I did what you suggested and here is the message from terminal:

fatal: fsync error on 'sha1 file': Bad file descriptor
