Change a commit pushed to GitHub... removing files

Asked by At

Git twists my brain. But I think I'm halfway there with this problem.

I committed (twice) and pushed to GitHub, but the first commit contained two files that should not have been included. So I have done the following...

git reset --hard HEAD~2

This brought the HEAD back to the first commit with the extra files.

HEAD is now at 1979096c2

Now, if I amend, commit (and force push) again with ONLY the two files that were needed, does this correct the commit on GitHub?

To be more clear... the initial (wrong) commit contained 4 files. I want to amend it to only have 2 files. Am I on the right track?
