The previous post we had discussed removes multiple files from a Git repository and which has been deleted already.  Now, if you want to remove a specific file from a Git use below commands,

git rm  : Remove files from the working tree and from the index.

$ git rm thelinuxfaq.txt

$ git commit -m "remove thelinuxfaq.txt"

Would you like to remove the file only from the Git repository but do not want to remove it from the filesystem,
use the below command,

$ git rm --cached thelinuxfaq.txt
