Hi! We don't provide a mechanism to do it but you can just :

  1. - Shut down Sourcetree.
  2. - Delete  the directory,
    • On Windows: %localappdata%/Atlassian/Sourcetree/git_local when Sourcetree is shutdown 
    • On Mac: /Applications/
  3. Restart Sourcetree.


Hope that helps!

Hi Ana,

I keep getting the below error while initializing git-flow on my SourceTree. 

sh.exe C:\Users\kpradhan\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\gitflow_local\gitflow\git-flow init -d
0 [main] sh 9008 fork: child 11952 - died waiting for dll loading, errno 11
C:\Users\kpradhan\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\gitflow_local\gitflow\git-flow: fork: retry: Resource temporarily unavailable


So, I figured using System Git instead of embedded git. However, it somehow doesn't save the option. I tried deleting the git_local folder, it worked as well. However, still gives me this error while initializing git flow.

Can you please help
