Hi Team,
So it has been a month looking for solution for my issue when cloning the remote repo from Sourcetree.

This is my error which i get. 

I really would really appreciate if this is resolved.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Sivakumar arasu ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

Using "Terminal" button on the right of your SourceTree, run the following command :

git config –global http.postBuffer 1024M


Hope this helps,

Hi @Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_ 
Thanks for the quick reply. I did the above command (git config –global http.postBuffer 1024M) which you provided.

By going to action--> Terminal. Since I got the main application page. And got a new error saying this.

Any other suggestions ??

Yeah.. Fabio here is using ligatures, so the double dash got connected. The command is supposed to look like this:

git config --global http.postBuffer 1024M

Though as a side note, this has never been able to solve my issues and also shows some underlying problems with your git repo (size, large blobs in commit history, etc)
