Hi Saikiran!

I will also check how often Bitbucket makes it's backup to the server. By default, it is once or twice per day, which floods the storage space of the server.  

Also, you can think of changing the backup method you are using. For example, make backups of the whole server, instead of just the Bitbucket as a product.

@Velizar Borisov  Thats good idea though i guess it might create huge data when taking whole server I guess.

Please see if you are using any NFS mounts for the storage. contact your infra team who manages the storage. it should help. 

@girish_shenoy  Thanks for your help

Dear Saikiran

what is the Operating system you are installing Bitbucket storage on? please try to extend the file system space.

this is the mission of the system administrator, not the Jira admin. Please consult your infrastructure team.

Best Regards,


@Medhat Ahmed  it is installed on windows. what might be the situation for out of storage when work is running minimal. any idea?

@Techie  what is the file system type you are installing bitbucket storage on it? do you have a RAID on your machine? what is the windows version?
