git lfs pull doesn't prompt password "Git credentials not found" Edited

I have a team member using Windows 7 and SourceTree to clone a repo that has git lfs. The repo was cloned fine but when downloading/pulling the lfs files SourceTree returns

Git credentials for http://xx not found

when running git lfs pull within git bash the same thing occurs as well as

exec: "C:/Users/Dan/AppData/Local/Atalssian/SourceTree/git_local/mingw32/libexec/git-core/git-gui--askpasss": file does not exist

They've added their credentials to SourceTree but still no luck. I helped another team mate, they were able to pull the lfs files using the same procedure.

How can I pull lfs data and have git bash or SourceTree prompt for a password and username?


I've asked at git lfs here but they suggested I reach out to the SourceTree community/team.

Can you check you are using Git v2.14 or higher.

The latest Git versions include the latest Git Credential Manager that has better sharing of credentials with Sourcetree.
