Git Question

Git list of changed files has been wiped

So I was working on a project when Windows 10 decided to update to 1607. I had saved all my work but not committed some 22 changed files.

After the update and re-installation of IIS, I have opened my project again and Git is reporting I have no changed files. I can see the work I have done. it's not rolled anything back, I've lost no work, but I can't commit what I have done, as apparently there are no changes.

How can I ask Git to check the files for changes against the branch?

I'm using Visual Studio 2015. (with Git obviously)

For some reason since upgrading to 1607, and subsequently flattening the PC and reinstalling Windows 10 1607, there is a .jfm file in a SQL project that devenv won't let go of, so I get file access issues everywhere.

As soon as I add this file extension to .gitignore everything returned to normal.
