SourceTree Gets Hung on Mac - Running macOS Mojave 10.14.2

When I open sourcetree it is unresponsive, and I get the spinning wheel.

I get the Updating URLs also has a spinning wheel.

I have deleted it, and tried reinstalling and the same thing.

any fixes?

My problem ended up being g Dropbox with active sync. My local copy was stored in a Dropbox folder with active sync. Active sync moved the files to the Dropbox sever and left references on machine. SourceTree then had a hard time dealing with the files.


Moved the local folder out of Dropbox, setup again and everything is working.

I am facing the same problem, very annoying.
