I was on Sourcetree 2.6.3 Windows and LFS downloads were incredibly slow. Updating the embedded git would not take me past LFS 2.0.2. I tried re-downloading Sourcetree and installing, but it rolled me back to 2.5.5 and downgraded the embedded git from 2.17 to 2.16, but with LFS still at 2.0.2. I did a complete uninstall of Sourcetree and wiped everything in AppData. I also took the extra step of removing every version of git from my computer and any other source control software that I had.
I re-downloaded a new installer and am now at 126.96.36.199 with embedded git 2.16 but now I have LFS 2.3.4.
A co-worker was lucky enough to get a good update to Windows 2.6.3 with embedded git 2.17 and LFS 2.4. His LFS downloads are MUCH faster than everyone on the team.
Why can I no longer update back to 2.6.3? Why is 2.5.5 the only version offered on the website now?
Update: there is a manual download link for 2.6.3 https://downloads.atlassian.com/software/sourcetree/windows/ga/SourceTreeSetup-2.6.3.exe
Thanks for the reply. I tried using system git 2.17 and LFS 2.4 but then sourcetree started giving me password errors. Even when I removed and re-added all user accounts, it wouldn't let me touch my repos on bitbucket. Switching back to embedded fixed this. I could give it another shot with this fresh install.
I installed git with the credential manager disabled (thanks for the tip). Though it still doesn't want to play nice with sourcetree. This time instead of being a password issue, it's a two-factor issue (which is not a problem with embedded).

I've used SSH in the past but was advised by Atlassian to use OAuth instead for performance reasons with LFS. I'm not sure why this error message is asking me to make an app password.
Any ideas why system/embedded would behave differently?
I am wondering if the embedded version is getting the app password from Sourcetree. You could try and generate a new app password and change your repository URL to this: https://[your_user_name]:[app_password]@bitbucket.org/[your_user_name]/[repo_name].git
