Hi Bhushan,

If you select the log entry to which you want to revert to then you can click on "Reset <branch> to this commit". Only use this option if you didn't push the reverse commit changes. If you're worried about losing the changes then you can use the soft mode which will leave a set of uncommitted changes (what you just changed). Using the mixed resets the working copy but keeps those changes, and a hard will just get rid of the changes entirely. Here's some screenshots:

Hope that helps, if not, feel free to ask more questions.

(EDIT: Just to add to that, there's a really good, understandable explanation of soft/mixed/hard modes here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3528245/whats-the-difference-between-git-reset-mixed-soft-and-hard)

Thanks! This helped me a lot with another issue

hi @Kieran Senior [Atlassian] , If I pushed the commit to remote server, Then what should I do in case, I want to revert the commit or soft reset the commit. as you say *Only use this option if you didn't push the reverse commit changes*. Thanks in advance.

I don't have this option on my right click menu. Is is Mac only? Does it only appear if the branch is called "master"? Something else?

Same question as @Md. Kauser Ahmmed - What if I already committed and pushed once or twice and I want to disregard both of those pushed commits and revert to a earlier point? What steps should be take in Atlassaian Sourcetree?

Good question, Kevin.  Seems you've been left hanging.  I, too, have done this "reset to to this commit" and what happens is my local repo resets but then I am now X number of commits behind the remote branch.  And sourcetree won't let me overwrite them.  I want to remove the commits after the commit I reset to.  Period.  Remote and all.  Why is this hard?
