Discard unstaged changes in GIT

You might have lot of unstaged files, which you dont want to submit to GIT. You can use CHECKOUT option from the git to do this.

1. Removing a single file
   >git checkout <filename>

2. Removing all unstaged files.
  >git checkout reset --hard

3. Sometimes, option (2) does not work. you can use the following option.
  > git checkout -- .

Make sure to include the period at the end of command.
