git-annex unannex - undo accidental add command
git annex unannex
Use this to undo an accidental
git annex add command. It puts the
file back how it was before the add.
Note that for safety, the content of the file remains in the annex,
until you use
git annex unused and
git annex dropunused.
This is not the command you should use if you intentionally added a
file some time ago, and don't want its contents any more. In that
case you should use
git annex drop instead, and you can also
git rm the file.
Normally this does a slow copy of the file. In
--fastmode, it instead makes a hard link from the file to the content in the annex. But use --fast mode with caution, because editing the file will change the content in the annex.
file matching options
The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files to unannex.
