SourceTree rejects discarding a file with corrupted Unicode characters


Hi everyone,

I've been using SourceTree over the last give years now and I really enjoy it, but sometimes I get to the point of frustration when SourceTree cannot discard chunks or files with corrupted Unicode characters. It happens for example when saving a file that had Chinese characters in different encoding and then saving it to another type of encoding. When I try to discard hunks or selected lines that contains these corrupted encoding characters, SourceTree rejecting from discarding and creates `file.h.rej`.

Is there a workaround to this, so I can discard changes without getting these issues? or is it an actual bug?

Thanks a lot in advance for taking the time reading my post!
