Hello @Happenbox ! Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Let me escalate this to Atlassian to see if they can perform garbage collection.

Gday @Happenbox !

I have just executed a garbage collection against your remote repository - it has reduced in size from 4.0GB to 1.4GB.

Would it be possible for you to check it on your end (by navigating to your Repository > Settings) and see if that has helped?
We want to inform you that we do have a Feature request to provide the option to run the GC from the end-user GUI. This way you need not raise a community ticket and wait for the support person to run the GC on your behalf:

I would suggest you "Watch" this ticket for future updates from our Dev team.

NOTE: You and your colleagues will need to perform a fresh clone of the repo before committing new changes, this is to prevent pushing back old refs and inflating the size again.

@Ben Thank you for the update. I've followed your instructions and everything is back working now. 


I'll keep an eye on the jira ticket also.


Thanks again,
