Sourcetree not responding when opening specific repositories


Sourcetree randomly stops responding when I try to open specific repositories. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, and cloning the repository from Bitbucket, but it still does not work.

Is there some kind of cache or something that I can clear? I'm at my wit's end.

I'm on Windows 10 running the latest version.
