Can't push to read only repo

So I have a bitbucket repository that is 2.3 GB which is over the limit. I tried to reduce by installing BFG and deleting an unneeded file. The result from count objects is 1.4 G. But I can't push because it is read only. Is there something I missed?

Hi Jackson, 

I've found a solution on Stackoverflow:

Through the Bitbucket UI:

  1. Create a branch
  2. Delete the branch

This will trigger the git gc command which runs a few housekeeping commands. 

If that doesn't work I would check with Bitbucket support.
