Using SourceTree when the repository is located on a virtual machine

I am working on a Windows machine with most of my project placed on that.

I also have a single project on a virtual PC.

The virtual machine is not always running.

I seems that SourceTree is trying to contact the project on the virtual machine when it is not running even if the project is not opened in SourceTree. This causes SourceTree to block most of the time and makes is useless.

Now I have to have my virtual machine running all the time or use another GUI for that one project.


Is there a way to make this work for me?

Can you try turning off the Check default remotes option in the Tools/Options/General tab.

We are investigating an issue where Sourcetree doesn't clear all the resources when a tab is closed, so can you also try this, after closing that particular repository tab and then restarting?
