SourceTree AutoRefresh settings have no effect

I am using the latest version of SourceTree on a Windows 7 laptop.  I have already configured the following settings:

General Settings

  • Refresh automatically when files change = checked
  • Refresh when application is not in focus = checked

Repository Settings (Advanced tab)

  • Automatically refresh = checked
  • Refresh remove status in the background = checked


However, even with all of these selections made, I am still required to hit View | Refresh every time I want to do a commit in order to see all of the available changes.

All of the basic uninstall/reinstall/reboot steps have been tried.

Hi Kevin, do you have a large number of tabs open? Do you see any difference if you only have one tab open on startup?
