delete a few last pushed commits

Is it possible in SourceTree?

I'm sure that nobody else works with this branch and want to delete 2 last pushed commits
it was my mistake - I commited/pushed these into wrong branch, I re-commited/pushed these into right branch after that but need to clean first branch.

I believed that I have to "reset (hard)" to <third>(from top, in my case) commit and push after that

but Pull shows my these two commits and Push reminds that non fast foward error


is it possible and how?

After you reset, check the "force push" option when you push. Don't pull after resetting.

EDIT: As Balazs pointed out, there is no force push option in Sourcetree. I was getting confused with the ability to force branch deletion. To force a push, use command line ( or another client.

don't see this option on Push screen

where is it "force push"?

There is no force push option in SourceTree. You have to do this from the command line or another Git client (e.g. Git Extensions).

That's right, updated my answer accordingly.
