Can not push after running BFG

I commitet one large file 3+GB to my git repo, then I deleted it (should have reverted it). 

Now I can not push a new commit since it excceeds the 2GB hard limit.

 

first, I can not delete a branch from bitbucket, then I ran BFG locally and was able to thin it to 250 MB, but can still not push it.

 

Anyone have experience with this issue? How can I get ride of this issue?

 

Many Thanks!

Hey Yihui,

Could you provide the repo`s name?

The BFG is a good practice to keep your repository size in a good shape.

When the repository hits the hard limit (2GB) BitBucket will not allow more push until the size is reduced.

Have a good day,
