Delete folders in the repository

Hi @Richardson Douglas,

Welcome to Atlassian Community.

You need to follow the steps outlined here, Reduce repository size. You need to undo your last commit. If that does not bring the size down below 2 Gb, you can contact Atlassian Support and they can trigger aggressive garbage collection on their end to bring the size down.
