If anyone else is having this problem, I have discovered the reason why.

It appears a git repository was created at the root of the C drive. I am not sure how this happened. Apprently, Sourcetree thought it should keep track of it and was scanning the entire C drive to check for pending changes.

Look for a .git folder at the root of the C drive and remove it.

It appears version 3.1.2 is scanning the entire C drive. See my process log above. 

I uninstalled 3.1.2 and re-installed 3.0.17 and the process log looks correct:

The process log is growing with the following info:
