Issue with access of Git repository on server from SourceTree

Hi All,

We have a Git repository on windows server and trying to access it from sourcetree so that i could clone the repository and work on my local machine. What should be the sourcepath/url that should be provided as any url provided is throwing the error.

I would like to know the pattern of the URL so that i could check is there something i am missing from my end.

Currently i am using the below url.

username@servername\\Repositories2\Demo, Repositories\Demo is the place where the git repository is created.Any information provided will be really helpful to us.

Since it is a local protocol you don't need to specify a username and password.  The OS handles the filesystem and network access.
