List the commits that changed a file
Lets say you deleted a file in your branch and you later realize that you need it back. If you remember the file path + filename, you can easily check which was the last commit that involved this file by the command
git log -1 -- [file path]
Now that you know which commit sha deleted the file, you can easily do a git checkout from there and get it back.
If you omit the –1 option, it will list you all the commits in which that particular file was modified in reverse chronologial order.
