Deactivate auto-update in Sourcetree


I'm using Sourcetree on a private network and everytime I start Sourcetree I get the following message : "There was an error during the update process : The remote name could not be resolved ''" which is quite annoying.

I could not find any way to disable the autocheck for update, is this a missing feature ?

Thanks !

Hi Charles! Are you using SourceTree for Mac or for Windows? If you're on Mac, you can go to the Preferences panel > Update and uncheck the box "Automatically check for updates". 

If you're on Windows, you can vote for this Feature request SRCTREEWIN-7196, as this option is not available yet.

Hope this helps,


Hi, I'm using SourceTree on Windows. I will vote for the feature request.

Thank you !
