Sourcetree hogs the CPU, the green progressbar in the upper left corner keeps filling

Good day.

A couple days ago I noticed that while Sourcetree is open, it seems to hog a lot of CPU resources, to the point where my mouse cursor lags as I move it around with Sourcetree focused. The green progressbar in the upper left corner also keeps filling nonstop. 

This doesn't seem to be the same case as in this https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Sourcetree-questions/SourceTree-high-CPU-load/qaq-p/741803 topic, as I don't see any interface refreshing, and the sourcetree process viewer doesn't show any abnormalities.

If it's any help, I've encountered this bug after simultaneously updating to sourcetree 3.0.6 and moving my project from an hdd to an ssd. I'm running win7 x64.

Hi

Thanks for reporting this. Could you try soemthing to help narrow it down?

Shutdown Sourcetree
Backup your %localappdata%/Atlassian/Sourcetree/bookmarks.xml and opentabs.xml
Re-open Sourcetree and add a single repository from the SSD

Do you get the same performance issues?

If you do the same above but open the same repo from a hdd, if you still can, what happens then?

Thanks for your reply!

Re-opening a repository from a SSD like that leads to the same situation.

When opening the same repository from the HDD, the green progress bar also keeps ticking perpetually, but the CPU load is much lover, only in the lower 10s.

The problem is still not solved, can I have any other opinions?

Anti-Virus? We have had reports of some AV setting aggressively  scanning Sourcetree processes.
