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

And also giving the same error while opening up the terminal as well.
