Restart merge for specific file

In SourceTree (for Windows) is it possible to restart the merge of a specific file.

My use-case is I have 10 files with merge conflicts.

I resolve the merge conflicts for 8 of these files successfully. However, for 2 of the files the conflict resolutions I make are horribly wrong.

The 2 files are marked as resolved and moved to the stage but how can I restart the merge for only these 2 files? Is there a SourceTree option or a Git command I can use?

NOTE: I'd prefer not to reset and re-do the full merge again.

Yes, I figured this out just this week.

Find the file in the staged changes area. Right click it, and go to Resolve Conflicts>Restart Merge.

This will only restart the merge for the selected file.
