Git merge deleting files while merging

I have a master branch with 3 files, and I've created one develop branch from master. Now i deleted one file and made some changes in another file. 

While merging develop branch into master the file I deleted in develop keep deleting in master as well. But i want to keep those files in master, how can I do that?

Hi @Gopi Kirshna,

What you are describing is the expected result from a merge. If you remove a file in one branch, the merge will remove it in the target branch too. Please have a look at for an option to pick which files gets "merged" into master.
