Sourcetree Crashes when Cloning a Repository Edited

I have been using Sourcetree with two Gitlab repositories for several months without any issues. Recently, I wanted to add a third repository and every time I try to clone the new repository to Sourcetree, it crashes (Sourcetree locks up and I have to use the Task Manager to close it) When I paste the HTTPS address from GitLab, Sourcetree recognizes the repository as a Git repository. A status circle starts spinning next to Advanced options and then Sourcetree freezes up.

The version of Sourcetree that I have installed is 3.4.5. Within the windows event viewer, I have noticed two errors that pop up. My colleague has been able to close the repository on his computer using Sourcetree without any issues. Do you have any ideas why this is happening?

I had the same error.

I solved it as follows:

- uninstall version 3.4.5

- delete folder c:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Atlassian

- instal version 3.4.4




Thank you so much! That fixed my problem.
