Branches got deleted


We have like 10 different branches for each developer and 2 days before we found that 4 branches were gone. None of us know how this happened. Log file shows a message "post pull source branch deletion". This message is there 4 times but does not actually give me branch name. If I go into web interface I don't see those 4 branches in the repo and no info about those deleted branches. Very confused that we don't have any info regarding this. We need help in recovering the branches and need to find the root cause how it happened to make sure it wont happen again.

Please help us!

Hi Shiva! We have an article that explains how to recover deleted branches, you can find it at  How to restore a deleted branch.

I also found this other post where some users share different approaches on how to solve that.

Let us know if this helped you!
