Sourcetree 2 Win can't load left panel (branches etc) for repo - worked perfectly in 1.9

After being basically forced to upgrade due to the security flaws in 1.9, I find that the repo I use most frequently is entirely unusable - it just permanently shows a loading gif instead of the entire left bar of the screen. There is no messaging of any kind whatsoever, just this uselessness. No other repo is affected, only this one. I have tried rebooting, reinstalling, etc.

In case any one see this and does not want to do the clone thing again. You can try this.. Go to .git directory of your not working repo, then refs, then heads, delete those empty folder, and restart SourceTree.


Or maybe it is because I update my ST from to :P
