System: Windows 10

SourceTree-Version: 3.1.3



We recently moved our git-repos to bitbucket, so we had to change all the repo-urls in our local SourceTree-Configs. It works fine so far, but every now and then a SourceTree-Popup opens up (even when SourceTree itself is not running) and asks for credentials for the old repo-url. We already deleted the old account from the sourcetree-account-list, doesn't help...

Thanks for reaching out about your random prompts for credentials for a moved repo. We would be interested to see the prompt to find where it’s possibly originating from. Could you please include a screenshot of the password prompt and any windows event log entries from around the same time?

Additionally, you may be using the Windows git credential manager. You may find more about this at Git-Credential-Manager-for-Windows.

We look forward to hearing back to find out where this prompt is coming from.
