SourceTree 2.0: "Uncommitted changes" yet nothing is pending

I just updated SourceTree to version 2.0.20.1 and I'm seeing something weird. My repository is saying that there are uncommitted changes but nothing is pending. I've checked the files and saw no pending changes. I entered "git status" on the command line and received a message that my repo was up to date.

I have discarded the changes and did a reverse commit to try and get rid of these ghost uncommitted changes, but both attempts did not work. Has anyone else experienced this bug? How do I get SourceTree to not think there are uncommitted changes when nothing is pending?

I did not get this bug before I updated to SourceTree 2.0. While I was making this thread, there was one suggested thread that might have answers, but the suggestions in that thread did not work. Thread

Hi Matthew! This has been reported as a bug, you can find it at SRCTREEWIN-7112. There's no workaround for it at the moment, please watch that ticket so you get notified of further updates. Let me know if you have any other questions :)

Kind regards,

Ana

To be clear, to continue working on the repositories will not cause an issue in terms of data corruption?

I found a solution.

I do not have files with case-sensitive names.

But: When i check "Disable LibGit2 integration", all "uncommited changes" disappear!

I feel that the overall operation has become faster.

Disabling LibGit2 integration worked for me. Tools: Options: Git: Disable LibGit2 integration.

Thanks for the tip!

Disabling LibGit2 (and then restarting Sourcetree) also fixed it for me.

Agreed, seems to run faster now too, not lagging on changing tabs with that scrolling progress indicator in the upper left.

Disabling LibGit2 integration (with restart) worked for me too.

Thanks!

This worked for me too. Is there any downside to this?

Thanks!

v2.3.1.0 Worked for me after SourceTree restart. Thank you.

I fixed this with the Git mv command... and correct the file with the correct filename. 

Command:

Git mv -f [SourceRepositoryLocation/WrongFileName] [DestinationRepositoryLocation/RightFileName]

I then just did a commit to the branch and the "Uncommited changes" node disappeared. 

As per today, if I go to Tools: Options: Git: Disable LibGit2 integration, and check "Disable LibGit2 integration" then the ghost uncommitted changes INSTANTLY go away.

then, they don't reappear if I enable it again, even without closing that dialog.

BUT

if I close SourceTree with LibGit2 still enabled (unchecked) and launch it again, the uncommitted changes pop back again.

Is it normal to have such issues? I was pretty surprised to see such an astounding bug still around (2017-10-31)
