I'm new to Git, so I might be wrong, but it sounds like you might want to
use "stash" in this instance.

> Hello Git-users,
>      I've a question regarding the use of multiple local branches.
>
> Let's say, I've created a branch b1 and made some changes like adding a
> new file to the branch b1 after checking it out.
>
> Then , I stage the file but not commit it.
>
> Now I find myself a need to create another branch to work on a high
> severity issue.
>
> So, I checkout local master branch and create another b2 from master.
>
> Now when I switch to b2, git shows the new file which is added to branch
> b1.
>
> Shouldnt it replace the contents of my working directory with the contents
> of parent branch master ?  Instead it shows the new file when i do git
> status.
>
>
> Can you please explain how does this work ?
>

> Thanks,
> Dinesh.
