SourceTree GIT LFS won't allow 64bit

I can't get SourceTree to run GIT-LFS in 64bit mode. It only does 32 bit. I have the 64 bit mode installed and if I do command line it has no issue. In the git tab of options I also have Use System Git mode enabled.... Not sure what to do here. It makes committing using SourceTree useless because it's slow and unstable as I have a BUNCH of binary files.

This may be a dumb question, but what's wrong with 32-bit git-lfs?

The 32 bit version is limited to about 300 mb of memory and it's very very slow. Example the 32 bit version ran for 12 minutes and did apx 150mb of files. The 64bit version did 1.7gb of files and finished in 30 seconds. I have a repo that is mainly binary (I make VR content) and this difference will save me days in development time per month.
