Saving untracked files or specific paths is 🔑:
git stash save -u -- <path…>
You ain't lying. Made the mistake of git clean w/ unsaved untracked files cause I was a noob. 🙈
I too learnt the hard way to use clean -n (dry-run of clean that just outputs what it would remove) before actually running it.
