Regret checking the Do Not Ask Me Again box


I'm using the latest version of SourceTree on MacOS. I accidentally checked the Do Not Ask Me Again box for LFS reminder while staging big files. Now, I do not get that nice reminder anymore. How could I get it back? I tried reinstalling SourceTree, but it didn't help. I also looked into the folder ‎⁨‎⁨Macintosh HD⁩ ▸ ⁨Users⁩ ▸ ⁨MyName ▸ ⁨Library⁩ ▸ ⁨Application Support⁩ ▸ ⁨SourceTree⁩, no direct clue there either. 

Can anyone help with this? Many thanks!

Hey, thanks for asking! This particular preference isn't documented or available in the GUI, so I appreciate getting the opportunity to play with the configuration and document a solution for you.

That particular preference is stored in ~/Library/Preferences/com.tortusknot.SourceTreeNotMAS.plist on MacOS. If you've got XCode installed, you can open that file straight-away and modify the value of the suppressOversizeFileWarning property to "NO":


Unfortunately since this plist file is binary encoded, you will need XCode to modify it. I poked around a bit to try and provide a command-line argument to modify it for you, but the encoding of the file makes the change too complicated to do via CLI. If you don't already have it, it's available for free in the MacOS App Store.
