I'm asking for a git gc operation to be performed on my 'holamundo' repository. This request comes after removing a few sizeable branches.

Thanks in advance.

Hello @nicoteamstudios and thank you for reaching out to Community! 

I've triggered a garbage collection for the repository you shared, but it didn't reduce the size, with it staying at 4GB.

You can try to further reduce the repository size by following the instructions outlined in our documentation Reduce Repository Size | Bitbucket Cloud , which provides options such as migrating the large files to LFS (a separate storage).

After following those instructions, we might need to trigger a new GC on your repo, so you can let us know here in this thread and we can execute GC again.

Thank you, @nicoteamstudios !
