After installing SourceTree 1.9.6 on windows 10 (not anniversary update) and I attempt to stage a file it always unstages all files (even if they were previously staged with the terminal). It seems to be attempting to stage, which is failing with an "Unable to create" on the .git/index.lock file as it thinks the file already exists. I have confirmed it does not exist.
I just encountered your problem of files unstaging in SourceTree 1.9.6 on windows 10 (with anniversary update). My fix is downgrading to 1.9.5. So if you need the fixes 1.9.6 provides then my answer won't be helpful sorry.
(Incidently my workaround on the crashing on start with 1.9.5 is to run SourceTree as administrator.)
I found out that using the "No staging" interface works but "Split view staging" doesn't.
Version 18.104.22.168 seems to have addressed this problem
I'm getting the same issue. Try to stage a file, and it errors out immediately with an error about the index.lock, and if I restart Sourcetree after deleting the index.lock file, sometimes Sourcetree removes and attempts to stage the entire local repository, resulting in a cascade of similar index.lock errors as it does whatever it is doing to all the files. There is no hung instance of git still running that justifies this error, and downgrading to 1.9.5 gets rid of the error. 1.9.6 seems outright broken.
Can someone point to a previous version download? This issue is blocking me from working at the moment...
Answering my own question: https://www.sourcetreeapp.com/update/windowsupdates.txt
Links to all versions in that file.
Having a boatload of issues myself with this version. I downloaded/tried to install 22.214.171.124 from the link above but I get error:
"A more recent version of SourceTree is already installed on this computer."
So not possible to revert to previous version. How can I get around this?
