How do I fully remove SourceTree so that I can do a "fresh" install?

I messed up my GitHub repository and just want to start over.  I'd had SourceTree 1.9 installed on Win 8.1, removed it via add/remove programs, deleted by messed up repository, removed the Atlassian program data.

Downloaded SourceTree 2.1.25 and, upon install, it still shows that messed up repository.  I also went through the registry, removing all references to either Atlassian or SourceTree.

What additional settings do I need to remove to start over with a fresh installation?

Hi Cindy! Can you try the following steps:

  1. Wipe SourceTree preferences.
  2. Uninstall SourceTree (if it shows on the App&Features list)
  3. Backup then delete the directory below before proceeding with next step
    • Navigate to C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local and delete SourceTree & SourceTree-Settings folder
    • Navigate to C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\Atlassian and delete all SourceTree Files/Folder.
  4. Download SourceTree and install it. 

Let us know if this helped!

Cheers,

Ana
