My current branch is "feature\COMS-260". In the remote there is one branch "hotfix/4.6.7". For some reason, my branch code is mess up.
I want to use all files in branch "hotfix/4.6.7" to overwrite my local branch "feature\COMS-260".
How to do it? I need Git commands or Sourcetree details.
Your description does not give all needed information - as Seth asked, it's crucial whether some of your erroneous files from branch "feature\COMS-260" are already pushed to your remote repository and if someone else is tracking branch "feature\COMS-260" in this case.
Also the information is missing whether some commits on your branch "feature\COMS-260" should be preserved, or whether all commits on branch "feature\COMS-260" are a mess (and maybe deleted therefore).
I'll try to describe the solutions for the two thinkable situations (assuming some of your commits on branch "feature\COMS-260" should be preserved):
******* To be on the safe side, make a backup of your local repository in case of some failure ...*******
Case 1: erroneous files already pushed to branch "feature\COMS-260"
Case 2: erroneous files NOT already pushed to branch "feature\COMS-260"
