I downloaded a bundle which I cloned from.
Unfortunately the person who made the bundle had made some unstaged
I tried to pull, but it gave me an error about the changes
So i used git reset --hard and I tried to pull again and got the exact
same error.. (Git diff also shows the files are edited, presumably by
the guy who made the bundle)
The GIT GUI showed 3 files which had 'unstaged' changes (the files
which caused the aforementioned error in the shell. So I reverted the
changes from within the GUI and the list of files with changes now
So I quit the GIT GUI and restarted it again, only to see the same 3
files back on the list, with the changes somehow 'unreverted'
I modified the folder preferences in Windows explorer and removed the
'Read only' option
Tried reverting again, still the files come back with the same
Also tried in GIT Bash :
git checkout . (dot)
git reset --hard
Still doesn't work
For some reason GIT is not able to revert changes to files
What might be the reason?
