Hi Guys,

I am trying to delete one of my Git branch. But it shows me the bellow error.

$ git branch -d dev1
error: The branch 'dev1' is not fully merged.
If you are sure you want to delete it, run 'git branch -D dev1'.

Hi@akhtar,

When you create one new branch in Git and commit new versions on that branch, it will create logs of that versions. Now if you try to delete that branch it will give an error. This error tells you that before delete your branch, merge your new versions with master branch. But you can delete that branch forcefully by using the bellow given command.

$ git branch -D dev1 

Hope this will help.
