Hi New here and fairly new to sourcetree.
I have an issue with cloning a site from bitbucket.
Steps I have taken so far are:
Everything has come across ok. I have made absolutely no changes to any of the files that have been cloned but I am seeing a large amount of unstaged files in my working copies. As I say this is literally a brand new clone so any ideas why I am seeing unstaged files that I have not changed at all?
I've also seen this if the files in question originally contained weird characters in their names that the local OS is having difficulty with - including filenames ending in a period when cloned to Windows or filenames that differ from each other only by case when cloned to Windows or (depending on your system settings) Macs.
Chances are that your OS changed the line endings, and git is not set to ignore them.
Another possibility is that file permissions were modified.
If you click on an unstaged file in SourceTree, it should show you the differences, if it can. Make sure you check "Show whitespace changes" in the dropdown above the diff. A permission diff is displayed, but it's hard to notice. Binary files can't be diffed with sourcetree.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
