I get authentication failed messages when trying to pull/push

I use a personal access token from GitLab to authenticate over HTTP. I recently generated a new PAT and tried to replace the old one but now I am unable to push, pull, fetch or do anything else. Below it says authentication is OK.


But then when I try to clone a repo I get access denied. This only happens on my home PC, my office PC made the switch without a problem. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling many times.

Go to this path : C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree and delete the file named passwd

Now come to source tree and Try to pull, this time a popup will showup asking for your password,

Enter your newly created PAT token as password.
