How to clean up cache used by manager-st

With SourceTree and windows 10, it uses manager-st for credential.helper.  How do I clean up the cache this manager-st uses?   I have problem with authentication to remote HTTP repository.


Here is my problem with pull operation:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=manager-st fetch origin
fatal: Authentication failed for ''
Completed with errors, see above.
