I found a similar question from 2013 with no answers: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/197337/sourcetree-doesn-t-recognize-an-existing-repository
I'm using Windows 8 with Sourcetree 126.96.36.199
I have a valid git working copy on my local hard drive. If I go to the command-line and run "git status" from within the working directory, it returns:
"Your branch is up-to-date with oprigin/master. Nothing to commit, working directory clean"
The working directory has a valid .git folder.
When I try to add this working directory to sourcetree, I get an error saying it isn't a valid working directory. I've tried two ways:
1. File > Open > Select Directory
Error: the path 'somepath/workingdir' is not a valid Git repository working copy.
2. Push the Clone/New button. Select the "Add Working Copy" tab. Select the correct working copy path.
Repository Type: This is not a valid working copy path.
Is this a bug or am I missing something? Thanks.
I just installed SourceTree 188.8.131.52 and ran into this issue opening a copy of a repository on a travel machine.

I also have "Allow SourceTree to modify your global Git and Mercurial config files" checked, which I'm assuming is also checked on the machine this repo was copied from.
Supported Platforms macOS Windows To make using Sourcetree as simple yet powerful as possible we embed (bundle) dependencies such as Git, Git LFS, and Mercurial. We strive to keep these...
