How can I recover remote branch



I delete a remote branch, and even after a reclone, the remote branch no longer appears in the list. I don't understand 'cause, the delete is local right ?

If you did this by right-clicking the branch name in the Remotes/origin section, you should have read this:

The way to get it back is to find somebody else who has a local copy of it and ask them to push the branch to the server.

Exactly. If you delete a local branch (one you had checked out at some point in the past), it will only be deleted locally. If you delete a remote branch (any branch in your repo that is preceded by the name of one of your remotes, like "origin/"), that branch will be deleted from the remote. If you don't want to see remote branches in your log, uncheck the "show remote branches" box, or change the dropdown next to it to only show "current branch".

Ok thank you it works !
