Git erased my changes, can I get them back

I had some changes in a branch, we’ll call it branch2. I switched to the master branch without committing the changes. I’m guessing this is a no-no because when I switched back to branch2 all of my change were gone! It sure would have been nice if the GitHub client for mac would have warned me. Is there anyway I can undo this action and get my changes back?

  • Upstream pulls with the GitHub desktop client
  • "Clone in Mac' fails on GitHub. Takes me to download page every time
  • How to continue using Git on mac after uninstalling Xcode (with Android Studio)?
  • remote permission to denied to user2
  • Running into a conflict trying to setup git with Homebrew
  • Github “fatal: remote origin already exists”
  • Error when syncing with Github for Mac app
  • How do I completely remove Github for Mac along with its Git installation and all?
  • One Solution collect form web for “Git erased my changes, can I get them back”

    If it wasn’t committed, then there’s nothing to do. Although, this is weird because normally git won’t allow you to switch branch if you have uncommitted data in your working directory (I don’t know for github for mac exactly).

    You can always check git reflog to see if you have committed your data.
