I've tried to clone a new repository on Sourcetree but I'm unable to proceed as it is throwing a fatal error. I checked Options under Tools on Sourcetree and it is using System Git.
When I click the details button, a wiondow popped-up as below
Please look into this issue and kindly help.
Hi Manasa, welcome to the Community!
Based on previous experiences, this error might be caused by Git. Can you go to Tools > Options > Git, and check whether you are using system or embedded Git, and whether you have an option to install an embedded Git.
While doing some research on this, I found a workaround that consists of creating a directory junction (hard link) for the embedded git Sourcetree tries to use.
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree create a directory junction using elevated command prompt named
git_local to point to scoop's git location
mklink /J %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\git_local *path*\Scoop\apps\git\current
Then in source tree options, specify it to use embedded git.
Lastly, this problem was already reported in our issue tracker and you can follow it here for more updates.
Hope that helps!
