Hi Александр, could you give us an example of some commands that are being slow and how long do they take to be executed? Remember to mention as well which OS and version are you using, and which is your version of SourceTree.

Thanks Andrew! I'll stay with SourceTree)

On my Win10 64, Core I5 / 8 GB RAM, Sourcetree is very very slow:

- Starting application: 48 sec

- In log/history view: clicking on any commit to see e.g. which files have been altered: 8-10 sec

- Clicking Tools-->Options: 17 sec. Closing Options dialog: 15 sec

- Opening new repo: 42 sec

- Checkout branch: 30 sec (In Netbeans <4 sec, command line <2 sec)


I'm experiencing the about the same speed problem as you :(
