Sourcetree asks to download binary content (LFS) on start

Zogu February 11, 2021

I updated to Sourcetree 3.4.2.

Now every time I open Sourctree it freezes for a 5-10 seconds and asks me to download LFS content.

Sourcetree git lfs.png

No mater what I chose it happens again on next start. 

Tried with embedded (git v2.29.2 + git-lfs v2.12.1) and system (git v2.30.1 + git-lfs v2.13.2) git version. 

This config is set for LFS:

fetchrecentcommitsdays = 7
pruneoffsetdays = 13

Repository is hosted on local GitLab server.

How fix this?

After updating to Sourcetree 3.4.3 dialog message is shown only once if I choose Yes. Next time when Sourcetree is opened it still freezes for 5 to 10 seconds and executes this:
git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks lfs pull 

When I chose Yes on dialog message on closing Sourcetree it updates  sourcetreeconfig.json -> "NeedsLargeFilesPull": true. If I change "NeedsLargeFilesPull" to false dialog message appears again.
