Souretree delete my all project contents in local! Edited


I make a repo through sourcetree. 

And I paste my project file in the repo derectory.

And then I try to push to git but stage can't check changing my project.

So I checked my project file, Suddenly my project folder was empty. 

I was embarrassed and clicked on other git projects through sourtree.

Then the contents of all selected projects have also disappeared.

I can't recover windows. I'm so embarrassed. 

I will submit my project file by tomorrow to company but now my all projects 

 have gone.


What should I do?

I just double click in this window. and my projects is gone.


I am very angry with this situation.

I hit the same problem. My local repository been deleted unexpectedly since last week. I have to clone project code every 2 or 3 days because all of my local working repositories somehow been deleted without any notification and confirmation! From last Monday till now, source tree deleted my local repository 4 times, I can barely work in these two weeks. Please help ...... 

The version of source tree is

SourceTree can only delete folders if it is asked to and will ask for confirmation, it will not do it by itself.

The screenshot of SourceTree suggests, it thinks the projects are still there shown by the branch and status information.

If you right click on the projects and select 'Open in Explorer' it should take you to where SourceTree thinks the projects are.

Sorry It's not my situation.

I told that I just click my repos in that windows and I tryed what you said but it's same result. project folder was empty too.

I didn't receive any confirmation from sourcetree.

Can you take a screenshot of the Local repo listing in the New Tab of SourceTree when you opne it now?


It seems that I'm not the only case, there might happened this problem in specific conditions.

Same situation happend with my local repository.

One of my local repository folders becamse empty about 2 weeks ago.


I am using v2.1.2.4.


This happends only for one project, not for others.
