Yes, me and my colleagues have the same problem. The solution: downgrade!

It seems to be a problem with the passwd file - it is always overwritten and the password is not stored - so SourceTree always asks for it again.

A colleague used another solution: he stored his password in the file (of course not plain text, find the original file somewhere, maybe on another machine) and made it read-only. But this is a workaround.

So better: just use an older version of SourceTree until this problem is fixed, version 1.6.24 is not usable!

Same here. Will downgrade.

Hello all, 

This might be related to this open bug:

As Chris suggested, the workaround at the moment is downgrade to version 1.6.23.
