how do I discard multiple uncommited changes in sourcetree

dear all,

looking for a solution to the question above as I have multiple uncommited changes (1631 in fact) that I wish to discard everything at one go.

any solution would be greatly appreciated thanks!

Hey Andrew,

Sourcetree expects you to check all the files that you would like to discard. With 1631 changes and no option to "Check all" files, I think git command line is your simpler option.

You can use the commands:

git reset

git checkout .

git clean -fdx

Hi Bhushan,

Noted on this thank you so much for the reply! will certainly try it out and revert you!

Hi Bhushan,

I've run the commands already and it works on my CLI but how do I reflect the changes in my working copy in sourcetree's GUI?

Apologies as I am really new to sourcetree thank you!

'Reset' your branch to your last commit:

  1. Right-click the last commit -> 'Reset <branch name> to this commit'
  2. 'Hard - discard all working copy changes' option.

Did you try the Discard button? The popup that comes up has a "Reset All" button that you may find useful.

Hi Seth,

Bhushan and your advice worked for me thanks!

I highlighted all the files and selected discard. It came up and showed the differences with a discard changes button on the bottom right and when I click it, it pops a window that says "At least select one file". How? I have highlighted them but there is not check box.

WTF an interface should be intuitive. I'd stick to SVN and Tortoise but my company choose this wack-oh system.

Wish they'd hire professionals to design their interfaces.

Based on other questions, it sounds like the latest version of SourceTree is missing checkboxes in many parts of the UI. You can downgrade to an earlier version until this is fixed, or use a different tool. SourceTree is just one of many available UIs for Git/Mercurial.

Good grief.  The "Reset All" tab should be relabeled to "Discard All".  I thought it was a shortcut to something that would reset the dialog settings...

Tom could be more tactful, but he does have some good points.  I'm sure all the functionality the designers intended is in there somewhere, but it is NOT always obvious how to get things to work.  There are far too many places where certain implications/connotations of specific function-names are not intuitive to someone who doesn't KNOW the system.

The whole GUI could use a professional review by someone who does NOT know how it works.

There are definitely parts of the UI that could be more intuitive, the Discard/Reset button being one of them.

However, since SourceTree is a GUI frontend for 3rd-party command line software (Git or Mercurial), many decisions are constrained by the need to remain consistent with that (especially with terminology).

As of version 3.2 make sure one of the Workspace tabs is selected and try to use the Reset... context menu. It it can't be enabled, try checking at least one unstaged file. When active the Reset... command also shows a Reset All option.
