Deleting large repositories failed

I have two large repositories in Bitbucket Cloud (77GB and 41GB, mostly LFS data) which I have tried to delete using the admin interface. Both delete requests resulted in 500 errors.

Neither of the repositories can now be accessed through the web UI (404 error), though the larger of the two still appears on the repository list.

How can these repositories be removed fully?

Hi, @Robin Betts! Welcome to the community! 

I confirmed that the repository was still appearing on your repository list because the deletion process failed and the repo was stuck in 'Deleting' mode. In this case, I went ahead and removed this repo for you.

About the other repository that is not appearing on your repo list, it seems it was deleted as expected. Could you please confirm that it is no longer appearing under your workspace? 

Please, feel free to share any additional questions or concerns regarding this case. 

Kind regards,
