how to discard thousands of files

My repository initially cloned many directories I did not need, so I deleted them from my cloned repository. Now those thousands (and thousands) of files show up in my Sourcetree Unstaged files area. I can select them one by one to delete, but it very slow and taking hours. Is there a way to mass delete these from the Unstaged area, for example not using the shift key and then scrolling or clicking to the bottom to select large groups, Sourcetree hangs when doing that.

@Lyn Hunter Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

To delete unstaged files, you can do it from the command line using

git checkout -- <file>
