On Windows 10 x64 with SourceTree v126.96.36.199 I the app was slow for me too. Would take 3-5 seconds or more for SourceTree to scan and detect file changes even in small repos with only a hundred text files of 300 lines or less each. Trying to open another bookmarked repo would sometimes freeze the app entirely.
I then noticed that the embedded Git version was out of date so I updated it and after restarting SourceTree now everything is snappy again.
Coincidence or perhaps related to this conversation, worth a shot to make sure not only is SourceTree current but the embedded Git is current too.

I have same problem here. In my repo i have about 5000 small size files (most of xml, some png, jpeg, some binary, etc. ). Staging all files takes about 20s. When I used terminal on same operation, I will get it about 2s. Merging feature branch into develop takes in SourceTree about 3 minutes, in terminal I will get about 5 second. Perfomance is very bad. No matters if i used system git or embedded git, or if I checked LibGit2 or not.
Using windows 10 x64, 4GB RAM, Sourcetree in version v.188.8.131.52.
Another issues what I've got is a lots of memory, which SourceTree used. When I started SourceTree, it takes about 130MB in RAM, after some operation of commits, merge, pulls, push, memory increses about 2.5GB RAM, and SourceTree is increadibly slowly.
I have problems similar to what Jon Adams describes. Anytime I fetch or select a branch in the left hand panel I can expect _at least_ a 20 second delay. I updated to the latest embedded git as you describe, but with no effect.
The app is almost unusable for me and has been since the first time I installed 2.x. I will have to look for alternatives.
Windows 10, Source Tree 184.108.40.206.
Try those operations with command line Git. If command line is faster, something about the SourceTree GUI for Windows is causing a delay. If it isn't, then it's either Git or your machine, and there's nothing Atlassian can do about it.
Either way, let us know what you find.
There is an Atlassian Documentation page of troubleshooting on SourceTree performance problems as you can see on the following link:
Could you please check this documentation and let me know if no one of these steps helped you? Then I can put away some possible causes and further investigate it for you.
Thanks Henrique, but these didn't.
In average, git-show command execution last less than 200 ms on my machine, whereas clicking on the last-commit line takes between 1 and 2 seconds. Click on the current state of the working directory "Uncommitted changes" takes between 2 and 4 seconds.
Here is the bench I made from the Terminal provided by SourceTree:
$ time git --no-pager show e9d0abee6b31e343b86f77fa67a8c3fe258c7975 > /dev/null
Hope this to be a motivation for multithreading that great Git client!
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
