Empty classes after creating a new branch

Hi, I've had an issue with Sourcetree and IntelliJ.

I was working on a project on master branch.

I've made some work and created a new branch, and commited on that new branch.

When I switched to master, I had my project as I expected it to be.

But when I switched back to my new branch, all the classes and files I created were there, but in the same state they were created.

Classes are empty now, for exemple,

package ...
public class MyClass extends OtherClass{
//my code


public class MyClass{

And this, for all the new classes and files I created between my last commit and the creation of my new branch.


How can I retrieve my work please ?

I don't know how Intellij acts by default but is it possible the files weren't saved in their edited state before Sourcetree was used to commit them?

Other than that I can only suggest looking through the Git log to see if they files appear in a commit in the state you expect.
