Hi Ira, we've started the progressive rollout of Sourcetree v2.3.5.0 which includes a fix for this issue. You should be prompted to upgrade at some point over the next 14 days or, alternatively, you can download the update directly here: https://downloads.atlassian.com/software/sourcetree/windows/ga/SourceTreeSetup-2.3.5.0.exe.

In the meantime, there's also another solution available, you can find it in this other Community thread, it's the answer proposed by Mike Corsaro:

Please navigate to the config file location (C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree.exe_{RANDOM_GUID}\2.3.1.0\user.config) and find the following line:

<setting name="AutomaticallyCleanUpDictionaryFiles" serializeAs="String">

   <value>True</value>

</setting>

Make sure that value is set to True

Let us know if you have any questions!

 

 

Best regards!

Ana
