I did a 'Reset to Commit' On soft Setting and it has taken my local working copy.

I was committing a big update (15 hours of work) and when i went to push (after i had committed and staged my files)

It told me one of my files was 1gb and cant be pushed (due to the 100mb maximum) 

So i used a reset to commit, on soft, so that i could re-commit and push my changes without, that massive files. 
After the reset said it was complete, My working copy (that i was about to commit) has disappeared and I am left with the version of it that is the old version and cannot find my files i was going to add.. How can I get them back? 

I need them.

The log says this : 
commit: # Major Update

As an answer to this question - Open terminal 

and use git reflog

Then find the HEAD{1,2,3,4 ect.} that is before your revert. 

and do a git reset 'HEAD@{your number)

from there put in git status, and it should pop up with a  bunch of files that were deleted/modified.. if it doesn't repeat the first steps above again till it does (with a different or the same number, just find the same text for the commit before the revert)

then once it does pop up with the list of deleted/modified files, 

put in git stash 


and you will have it all back!
