Sourcetree cannot login

Whenever I try to fetch or pull a login screen pops up. I enter the correct username and password (i know they are correct because i use the password to login to bitbucket on chrome) but i still get a "invalid username/password" message.

I've checked and rechecked everything, I even removed my other account that i don't use anymore (i had 2 different accounts from when atlassian and bitbucket were not the same, having issues with that ever since).

Ok. I've tried removing the windows credentials as mentioned in other threads. Did not work. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Sourcetree, did not work.


Finally I uninstalled Sourcetree, uninstalled Git, searched my entire C drive for anything containing the words "Atlassian" or "Sourcetree" and removed all of it (apparantly uninstalling the software still leaves a lot of files in various appdata folders) and reinstalled Sourcetree. Now everything works again :)

It worked for me, thanks!
