How can I remove old zip files?

We used to keep zip files in bitbucket, and updated them occasionally.

Now we don't need them anymore and I did a 'git rm' so its not in the repository anymore.

Its my understanding, correct me if I'm wrong, that when you do a 'git clone' it pulls all older changes which would include the obsolete zip files.

To save time and space, Is there a way to prune these zip files so its not always downloaded?

You could either use git filter-branch command or the BFG Repo-Cleaner tool. Have a look at this guide, https://help.github.com/articles/removing-sensitive-data-from-a-repository/
