How to disable the slow git submodule status calls in SourceTree?

Does anyone know how to make SourceTree to not use "git submodule status"? Or how to make it faster?

The slow command:
git.exe --no-pager -c color.branch=false -c color.diff=false -c color.status=false -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=manager-st submodule status --recursive


For each liitle action i have to wait a minute until it went through all 34 submodules. Thats annoying.

SourceTree Version:
Using embedded git
Check submodules before commit & push: off

Hi Mike! At the moment, it's not possible to disable that. I've submitted this as a Feature request and you can find it at SRCTREEWIN-7277. You can vote for it, add a comment or watch it to receive future updates :)

Regarding the slow calls, were you having the same issue in SourceTree 1.9 or earlier versions?

Best regards,
