How to move branch files to another branch?

I have some files and directories in the master branch, and I've created another branch named 'dev'.

I would like to know the trick to move all the master content to the 'dev' branch, without committing to the dev branch and delete all master content.

Answer

To get a new branch with the same content as master, do a git checkout -b new_branch from the master. Then do a git checkout master and manually delete all the files..

Hope this helps!!
