Hi @Rivet

You can delete the file in LFS but the process is not the same as compare to the Bitbucket Cloud. You can proceed with the following steps:

  1. On the local git lfs, remove the file from history using the filter-branch:
    $ git filter-branch --force --tree-filter 'rm -f path/to/big_file.mpg' HEAD
    $ git reflog expire --expire=now --all && git gc --prune=now --aggressive
  2. After you remove files from Git LFS, the Git LFS objects still exist on the remote storage and will continue to count toward your Git LFS storage quota.

  3. To remove Git LFS objects from a repository, delete and recreate the repository. When you delete a repository, any associated issue key and forks are also deleted.


Hello @Baskar Annamalai , has anything changed on this? Is there in newer versions another way to delete Git LFS objects?

Hi @Benjamin I believe there aren't any changes to Bitbucket Server on removing the objects. The documentation on disabling and deleting LFS objects is still valid.
