    Create a list of all dangling or unreachable commits.

    git fsck --full --no-reflogs --unreachable --lost-found

    Print a list of commit messages for all commits in the lost and found.

    ls -1 .git/lost-found/commit/ | xargs -n 1 git log -n 1 --pretty=oneline

    Find your missing commit through the process of manual inspection (i.e. reading).
    Create a new branch with the missing commit as the branch head.

    git checkout -b branch-name SHA

    Having got the potential sha1 for the last tip of branch demo, use gitk sha1 to actually browse the commit’s history to check you have the right one.
