Delete large file from the repository

sunny386 March 20, 2023

I want to delete the large from the repo. how can I do it and decrease the repo size?

I want to reduce the size of the repo, can someone please help?

I have manually deleted the file but the repo size is still same, running git gc may resolve the issue. Please run.

Hello @sunny386 ,

I see you have raised an internal ticket with us, and one of my colleagues already executed a GC on your repository which reduced the size back to 153MB.

Feel free to reach out to community again in case you need further assistance in the future :) 

Thank you, @sunny386 !

Hi, @sunny386 - this is a user support community, not Atlassian tech support. We don't have access to your repos.

If you're having issues, please open a ticket with Atlassian support at

I'd also recommend you edit this post to remove your repo and file names, as those shouldn't be publicly available.
