I'm trying to recover a commit that was lost after an unsuccessful merge after pulling (with the rebase instead of merge option checked). Admittedly I'm not entirely sure about this process, as I was instructed to use it to avoid large merged commits, and that's why I'm in this mess.
After there was a conflict, I clicked 'Continue Rebase' by mistake instead of Abort, and consequently it has wiped out a lot of work. I'm using SourceTree's inbuilt version of GIT.
I would appreciate your assistance in recovering my work, since the commit is now entirely gone from this GUI's history.
Thanks Balazs. Luckily git hadn't deleted the commit. I managed to find and recover it using the terminal and perform a hard reset to restore my lost work.
by the way if there are other commit maid after your lost commit, you can create a branch from this one and that way "clone" the existing branch. Then follow the steps suggested by Richard, and have your branch safe and sound with new name (of the newly created branch).
