'git status' failed with code 129: Unknown option: -c

My SourceTree shows 1.7.0.4 but command prompt (WIN7) shows git version 1.9.4.msysgit.2

 

I see below errors when cloning or adding repositories.

 

Please help!!!

Try switching SourceTree to use the System Git or update the embedded Git (both in Tools\Options\Git). (It is probably using the embedded 1.7.0.4, which is pretty old.)
