SourceTree not responding and consuming RAM on Windows 10

I know SourceTree sometime is very slow when committing a large file, but in the last few days I can not run SourceTree due to it doesn't respond. I checked Task Manger and see it consumed so many Ram. This make me very frustrated because I can't commit my works sad

I have the same problem. Cant use SourceTree any more. Help required. 

I am having the same problem too. Very frustrating.

Same here. v1.9.5. Win7 Enterprise, I7 cpu, 16GB RAM - half free.

Same here v2.0.20.1 Win 10 home, i5, 12 gb ram

I had the same issue on v2.0.20.1.

There seems to be a memory leak, SourceTree was using over 30GB of RAM for a large repository.

I've reverted to 1.10.23.1 and that fixed the problem.

Here is the Archive page for previous versions:

Found a fix:

Uninstal Sourcetree with Add/remove programs.
After that go to C:\Users\YourUser\AppData and search for Sourcetree. Delete it all, reinstall it and it will work like a charm...Until you shutdown your PC.
