Restore deleted repository - SourceTree

Hi everyone,


In the 1.+ version of SourceTree, we were able to remove a project from bookmark, and then find it again in our bookmarks when we re-open it.

On the current version of SourceTree, if I delete a repo from the "All Repos", and then if I open it again, the repo does not reappear in the "All Repos".

The only workaround that I found was to clone again the project in order to make it appear in my "All repos" folder. 

My question is: how can I save a repository to my bookmarks without recloning it ?

I'm afraid I don't quite follow the question, could you add some more detail maybe screenshots to clarify?

In both versions of SourceTree you can delete a bookmark and you have the option to just remove the bookmark and/or delete the repository from the filesystem as well.

If you remove a bookmark, but not the repository you can use the 'Add' option to recreate the bookmark.

Alternatively if you move a repository on the file system but leave the bookmark, yu can double-click on the bookmark and point it at the new repository location

The "add" button was the solution indeed. 

I'm pretty sure in the previous version of SourceTree, bookmarks were automatically updated after we open a project from Ctrl+O, but anyway, this works !

Thanks Michael !
