Every time I try to make a change in my branch, SourceTree creates an index.lock file in the .git directory, then refuses to make the change because an index.lock file exists. Deleting the lock file doesn't help, as SourceTree will just create it again. Any suggestions?
I just did an update to 2.6.3 and the index.lock issue is back again! It seems that Sourcetree creates the index.lock, then does the commit or whatever task you trigger, and at the end does not delete index.lock anymore. I manually have to delete index.lock every time I trigger an action. When will this be fixed?
I still see this on 2.7.1 on macOS very regularly. I think it's a race condition somewhere in source tree as sometimes it causes it and sometimes it can sort itself out.
I have had success with closing sourctree and deleting .git/index.lock from the command line
