Delete Files on Remote

I am out of space on my remote repo. I learned that I can remove unwanted files (via git rm -r f --cached Directory Name). I then added these unwanted files & directories to a gitignore file. However, I cannot push the changes as my remote is in read only mode since it is too large.

How do I either delete folders on the remote or wipe it clean and pull the updated version from my local repo?

Hi Nathan,

Once your repo is set to read only on the Bitbucket platform, you will need to open a support case at https://support.atlassian.com, and the Support staff can set the repo back to read/write and run a remote git gc for you.

Cheers,
Gary
