Removing Un-tracked files:
git clean -f
But beware… there’s no going back. Use
--dry-run to preview the damage you’ll do.
If you want to also remove directories, run
git clean -f -d
If you just want to remove ignored files, run
git clean -f -X
If you want to remove ignored as well as non-ignored files, run
git clean -f -x
Note the case difference on the
X for the two latter commands.
clean.requireForce is set to “true” (the default) in your configuration, then unless you specify
-f nothing will actually happen, with a recent enough version of git.
Note that as of git-1.6.0, the dashed style of writing git commands (ie,
git-clean instead of
git clean) is obsoleted.
