Retrieve working copy

Hi I'm new to SourceTree and i clicked on a branch by accident and it checked out that branch, overwriting my working copy. Is there any way to retrieve my work back?

If you double-click on the original branch to check out that one, you should get (almost) all of your changes back. (There would have been a warning before anything is properly destroyed,)

Most changes that weren't committed will be gone. However, as Balazs mentioned, SourceTree would have warned you about that before allowing you to checkout another branch.
