How to delete all changes from working directory including new untracked files. I know that
git checkout -f does that, but it doesn’t delete new untracked files created since last commit.
Does anybody have an idea how to do that?
git reset --hard # removes staged and working directory changes ## !! be very careful with these !! ## you may end up deleting what you don't want to ## read comments and manual. git clean -f -d # remove untracked git clean -f -x -d # CAUTION: as above but removes ignored files like config. git clean -fxd :/ # CAUTION: as above, but cleans untracked and ignored files through the entire repo (without :/, the operation affects only the current directory)
To see what will be deleted before-hand, without actually deleting it, use the
-n flag (this is basically a test-run). When you are ready to actually delete, then remove the
git clean -nfd
