sourcetree git status failed with code 128 not a git repository


For some reason this popup started to appear on my sourcetree, and therefore my sourcetree has become unusable. It generates a new popup every 2 seconds. 
The strangest thing here is the location. Under this location (.git) I have eclipse egit projects, and I have never opened this repositories with sourcetree. My sourcetree repositories are in a different folder.

Please help how can I stop this?

Do you have a .gitconfig file in that folder? If not, you should.
