SourceTree keeps cloning the same (and incorrect) repo


(Edit Jan-30): After an intensive cleanup at c:\users I re-installed SourceTree and Cloned successfully few repos. It looked fine till I exit ST and re-entered. Then problems began. Please view the enclosed images. repo "su4_emv_pom_shared" intruded into repo "aps_30-beach-main". Check also down the 3rd image message "fatal: refusing to merge unrelated histories".

Hi. Upon any clone-session, SourceTree (3.1.2 but also at the newest version) ends up by showing other (and undesired) repo, regardless which repo I tried to clone.

Not only that, the shown repo is defective (includes invalid commits, detached from master branch).

I've tried these:

- Uninstall ST

- Shift-Del Atlassian folder from its root, at c:\users

- Shift-Del SourceTree folder from its root, at c:\users 

- Reinstall ST, including Mercurial, assigned to Bitbucket

- Create fresh pair of HASH keys (SSH Private/Public)

Now get this:

- Clone repo A - ST shows repo Z

- Clone repo B - ST shows repo Z

And so on and so forth.

Any ideas how to solve this irritating problem ? (like Registry editing or deleting other files/folders)

BTW: Cloned using gitk worked like a charm! same thing for $ git clone
