Source tree has stopped showing "new" files

I must have toggled an option somewhere and I cannot figure it out.

SourceTree has suddenly stopped showing "new" files.

What I mean by this is that, it used to be that I would add a new file to a git controlled directory and it would appear in SourceTree's unstaged files window with the green plus icon next to it.

This no longer happens in any of my repositories.

SourceTree detects if I modify an existing file, but not a newly added file.

I confirmed that I do not have a global .gitignore.

I did a test. I created a brand new repository. No global .gitignore and no local .gitignore. I created a file in the directory but SourceTree ignores it.

Any suggestions?

There is a dropdown above the file list. If you switched it to "Modified" instead of "Pending", it would only show tracked files that had changes.

It's worth mentioning that you'd also not see deleted or conflicted files.

Goodness!!! I see that option now... so I didn't need to go nuclear and do a complete reinstall! Next time! I'll be sure to keep the team updated.

Thank you Seth.

Still Cant see the new files

Is there supposed to be a setting like this in BitBucket too? If so, I'm not seeing one.

Thanks for this solution!

This was really wreaking havoc with what I thought I was checking in 

Was it a new update that changed the default to use modified instead of pending?

I don't know what the surgical response would be, but it works after I uninistalled GIT and SourceTree, deleted all Source Tree files I coudl find under the Windows App Data folder and then reinstalled the two items.....

Thanks John Rocha. That is what exactly happened to me....!
