git.exe fsmonitor process did not exit after close sourcetree

ydcool I'm New Here Dec 12, 2021

On windows, Sourcetree.exe will start "git.exe fsmonitor--daemon run" process for every local repository(even not opened in tab), I didn't found how to disable this feature, and what's worse, those process will keep running/existing after I close/shutdown the SourceTree.exe, and it'll prevent any action on my local repository folder, I have to kill them all one by one in task manager. It's strange, and kind of bug.

Additional info:

  • SourceTree version: 3.4.7
  • git version:
  • OS: Window 10 Professional 1803 (17134.1304)
