How to reverse a commit on a respository greater than 4GB in size?


I wasn't aware of the file size limitations on bitbucket and uploaded more than 4GB in a single commit.  I'm trying to reverse the commit but I can't push the reversed commit because the repository is now of a size larger than 4GB and won't let me push anything.

How can I delete these files so that I can push again? I just want to reset my last commit.

Thanks in advance for all the help!

Hi Cole,

You can check the following documentation page on how to undo the last push:

As mentioned there, make sure you enable the Delete dangling commits when over size limit feature for your account in, so that a garbage collection will get triggered automatically after you follow the steps on that guide. The repo size should then be reduced in a few minutes. If you don't see the repo size getting reduced a few minutes after you have followed the steps on the guide, please feel free to let me know and I can trigger a garbage collection manually.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
