Why is SourceTree 2.0+ SO SLOOOOOOW??!?!

I've recently updated to SourceTree 2.0.20.1 on Windows, and it doesn't seem like it can push or pull anything from origin. I've reverted to using Git via terminal instead.

When I open it, it downloads *something* before opening (after like 20 seconds). Wtf? Are you mining bitcoins in the background???

Hello! Could you do the following for me:

  • Open the slow repo
  • Go to "Repository -> Benchmark Repo Performance"
  • Upload the resulting file

Thanks!

Here's the file you required:

This screenshot was taken after trying to push a commit with just 2 spaces as a change:

This one was taken after 3 minutes:

This one was taken after 10 minutes:

Note that I did not cancel the Git push. Trying it in the terminal, the operation finished after 2 seconds.

Uninstall all versions of sourcetree.

Remove (or copy to another location) C:/Users/{username}/AppData/Local/Atlassian

Reinstall sourcetree.

Re-add your repos.

Voila source tree no longer hangs when you try and do anything with it.
