    You could simply reset your own branch to the one from origin

    git fetch origin
    git reset --hard origin/aBranch
    

    That would remove any local commit and local modification from the working tree, and reset everything to what is fetched from the upstream repo.

    If “origin” and “upstream” differ, you would need to “git push –force” one to the other (make sure the other collaborators are aware of that push).

    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
