I’ve always said that I know just enough about git to get the job done, but also do something destructive. Nothing embodies that more than my recent mistake. I somehow found a git repository full of untracked files and
git stash wouldn’t fix it. Desperation led me to learning how to remove all untracked files, the same way
hg purge does for mercurial.
To remove untracked files and directories, you can execute:
# Remove untracked directories git clean -fd # Remove only untracked files git clean -fX
There you have it — you’ve removed your untracked files. The dangerous side? It will also delete files hidden by
.gitignore when you run a
git status. Be careful when removing untracked files!
