How can I see closed branches in SourceTree?

What exactly do you mean by a "closed branch"?

If you mean a merged and deleted branch, you can only see the commits that used to belong to it, but the branch name will not show up anywhere.

If the branch is not deleted, you can see it like all other branches.

I mean a branch that has been closed with --close-branch $>mkdir st-closed-sscce $>cd st-closed-sscce/ $st-closed-sscce(default)>hg init $st-closed-sscce(default)>hg branch foo marked working directory as branch foo (branches are permanent and global, did you want a bookmark?) $st-closed-sscce(foo)>echo foo > 1.txt $st-closed-sscce(foo)>hg add 1.txt $st-closed-sscce(foo)>hg ci -m 'change log' $st-closed-sscce(foo)>hg branch bar marked working directory as branch bar (branches are permanent and global, did you want a bookmark?) $st-closed-sscce(bar)>echo bar >> 1.txt $st-closed-sscce(bar)>hg ci -m 'change log' # see both 'foo' and 'bar' in sourcetree sidebar $st-closed-sscce(bar)>hg up foo 1 files updated, 0 files merged, 0 files removed, 0 files unresolved $st-closed-sscce(foo)>hg ci -m 'closing branch' --close-branch ### no more 'foo' in sourcetree sidebar

Ah, sorry I thought we were talking about Git. :) Based on these two topics: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3227988/closing-hg-branches http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2237222/how-to-correctly-close-a-feature-branch-in-mercurial it seems that the point of closing branches is that they are no longer visible in the branch list.
