I'm pretty sure I've searched everywhere, and this issue hasn't been reported yet:

Issue Description:
Sourcetree has connection issues despite no issues in authentication or connection when using Powershell/Terminal.

(From sourcetree):

fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

Things to note:

1.) Like I said, this is not an authentication issue.  My SSH keys are correctly set up on my device and Github account and sourcetree (in fact, it was working 2 days prior).

Using the Terminal works: 


git pull
From ---------------
* [new branch] r2 -> origin/r2
Already up to date.

2.) Sourcetree was working when I first installed it on the machine.  It only stopped today. 

3.) The last known changes to my machine prior to it not working was installing SMB from windows features:

4.) Sourcetree's terminal also works.

5.) I have already uninstalled Sourcetree, I've Deleted \%username%\appdata\atlasian . Reinstalled it.  Restarted the OS.  I've also re-generated new SSH keys.  Still no-go.

...Any clues?
