[macos] How to discard uncommitted changes in SourceTree?

I'm new to the Git environment, and I'm using BitBucket with SourceTree on Mac. All I want to do now is to discard the changes since last commit. How should I do this? I haven't found anything like "discard changes", and directly pulling from the last commit doesn't seem to work. Solutions done with either the GUI or command line will be good.

The answer is


Ok so in Windows sourcetree that is simple, on macOS I looked as well for a while..

Click Command + Shift + R while in source tree a hidden popup will be shown that will let you discard individual files OR ALL! Why is this hidden? We will never know.. but it works!

On SourceTree for Mac, right click the files you want to discard (in the Files in the working tree list), and choose Reset.

On SourceTree for Windows, right click the files you want to discard (in the Working Copy Changes list), and choose Discard.

On git, you'd simply do:

git reset --hard to discard changes made to versioned files;

git clean -xdf to erase new (untracked) files, including ignored ones (the x option). d is to also remove untracked directories and f to force.


Ok I just noticed that my question was already answered in the question title.

To unstage files use

git reset HEAD /file/name

And to undo the changes to a file

git checkout -- /file/name

If you have a batch of files inside a folder you can undo the whole folder

git checkout -- /folder/name

Note that all these commands are already displayed when you git status

Here I created a dummy repo and listed all 3 possibilities

# On branch master
# Changes to be committed:
#   (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)
#
#       modified:   test
#
# Changes not staged for commit:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
#   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
#
#       modified:   test2
#
# Untracked files:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)
#
#       test3

Its Ctrl + Shift + r

For me, there was only one option to discard all.

enter image description here


On the unstaged file, click on the three dots on the right side. Once you click it, a popover menu will appear where you can then Discard file.


From sourcetree gui click on working directoy, right-click the file(s) that you want to discard, then click on Discard


Do as follow,

  • Click on commit
  • Select all by pressing CMD+A that you want to delete or discard
  • Right click on the selected uncommitted files that you want to delete
  • Select Remove from the drop-down list
