Hi Kuldeep, have you added a remote account already? If so, can you check that the credentials stored in Tools > Options > Authentication are correct?

If the problem persists, can you let us know:

  • From which system are you cloning (Bitbucket Server or Cloud, Github, etc...)?
  • Version of Windows
  • Version of SourceTree

Best regards,


You can also refer to Clone a repository into SourceTree to make sure you're following the right steps :)
