Hi @kokhow.teh ,

Thanks for reaching out!

This is not an issue with Sourcetree or Bitbucket, this is how Git works. The good thing about Git is that it is a version control system, so your work is not lost, you just need to go back to a previous version before you did the force push and you'll be able to continue working from that point on.

You can learn different ways of undoing changes in one of our tutorials. You can also refer to the official Git documentation for further explanation.

Hope that helps,
