all files are in unstaged area

Deleted user April 25, 2019


I have an issue that all files even the ones that are not modified are in the unstaged area. I have selected "pending files" and I have tried to select "modified files" but both show all files.


It is the first time that I upload anything to a fork.

I have copied all files (edited and unedited) from the location that I work to the GitHub location.

how can I let Sourcetree only show actual files that have been modified?

First I would use the Terminal and >Git status to confirm what Git thinks has changed.

Sourcetree should only reflect the same information. 

Situations like yours can arise when line feeds change between Windows and mac/Linux repositories. In these cases the white space  changes might not be shown. In the Cig check it whitespace changes are being ignored.

Git status saying 

Your branch is up to date with 'origin/XXXXXX'.

nothing to commit, working tree clean
