How do I use git reset --hard HEAD to revert to a previous commit

0 votes

When I revert this commit:

git reset --hard HEAD

Git then returns:

HEAD is now at 820f417 micro

I know that git will track the changes o my app till I commit. What I want to know is how can I revert the files on my hard drive back to that previous commit?
