How can I clone a repo with sourctree with included subtrees

I have a git project where a subtree is included. If I clone this project, the subtree won't be shown on the sidebar on the left side. I don't know if this is a bug or if this is the normal behavior.

Git does not record subtrees in the same way it does with Submodules. The information you see in the sidebar in SourceTree is recorded by SourceTree itself and so is not reproduced when someoone else clones the repository.
