    Description

      About every few seconds, SourceTree creates a spree of git processes in the background usually in 4 or more subtrees.

      I've disabled:

      • "Automatically refresh" in the git repository
      • "Refresh remote status in the background" in the git repository
      • "Refresh automatically when files change" in the global options
      • "Check remotes for updates" in the global options

      I'm at SourceTree 1.9.6.1 on Windows 7 x64.

      The processes make the 4 core system use ~60% of CPU on average slowing down my work.
