What does discard local changes mean?

I often see this option "Discard local changes?"

Precisely, what does this do? Does this delete files in the .gitignore list?

Hi there,

Discard local changes will literally discard the changes you've made to the file since your last commit or pull, so make sure you use it carefully! Although I'm not sure where you're seeing this option, the diff view offers the "Discard" button. The option is typically called either 'revert' or 'reset' depending on DVCS you're using.

Cheers
