SourceTree - Is there a Limit to the Number of Git Repos

Is there a limit to the number of Git Repo.


I can add them to Source Tree, but when I close the new one.  It is not in list of Seachable git repos.

No there isn't any hard limit.

Can you describe how you are adding the repos and what version fo SourceTree and OS you are using?


To add to Michael's answer, note that the only limit we have is the size per repository, you can have unlimited repos up to 2GB each. For more information you can visit What kind of limits do you have?

Best regards,


I am Using Windows 7 Version


I choose File -> Open -> and then find and open the git repo.

Which Works.


If I then close at git repo (By Clicking X).  


If I then choose the "Plus" that git repo is not in the search.




I think this is just a misunderstanding about File/Open option. This will just open the repo, it does not add it as a bookmark.

To do that open the 'New Repo' tab using the + in the tab header. Then select the 'Add' option and open your repo in there. You can add a bookmark name and optionally folder it.

After adding it there you will be able to search for it in the 'Local' list.
