How to permanently remove a notification under the flag

The flag icon is orange in the title bar. It says something about Git-LSF. I keep on deleting it but it comes back on restart.

Work-around for embedded git in related community post ([Latest notified update for Embedded GIT to does not install update GIT-LFS|]).

My issue isn't that Sourcetree is out of date. I don't know what Git-LFS is.

Try downloading the latest version of Git -- you can check your git version in "Tools > Options > Git". The latest version is 2.17.1

Thanks, that seems to have fix it.

I have exactly the same notification.

I have git v2.18.0 + git-lfs v2.3.4 (system git because latest embedded was broken for me)

I am not using LFS and I am not going to use it in near future.

Hello! This is probably because you're running an old version of git. It's recommended that you upgrade due to a security issue in the previous version.

I'm having the same issue, it keeps telling me to update to but updating the embedded GIT does nothing.

Are you using system git, or embedded git?

I'm running the current version
