Source tree stops recognizing local changes after an hour


We are using the latest version of source tree on windows ( and it will recognize when files change automatically for about an hour then past that, it stops recognizing changes.


If we close the tab and reopen, it will go back to automatically recognizing changes for another hour-ish and then stop.


Once it stops, manually refreshing after a file changes will update the sourcetree UI.


Under settings, auto refresh is enabled.


Does anyone know what may be happening?  Any suggestions on where else to look to debug this issue?
