SourceTree is not seeing my new subfolder

I added a new subfolder and files into the subfolder.  SourceTree is not list the new files in the subfolder for me to commit.  I am sure I was able to do this several months ago.

Anyone has an idea how to get this fixed?

You should check your .gitignore files. The folder name you chose might happen to match a folder name that is frequently ignored because other common tools use that type of folder to store files that shouldn't be versioned.

That's the most likely explanation.  Be sure to check your global ignore as well as the repo-specific ignore.
