My Repository has exceeded 4GB

A Repository that I have has exceeded the 4GB limit imposed by Bitbucket.

I have pruned my local repository, but I think I need support to temporarily increase the size of my repository so that I can push the changes to the server. 

What is the correct process to have this rectified?

Thank you in advance.

Hi @Shane Thomas,

I saw one repository over the 4 GB limit from the ones you have access to. I ran a git gc on it and its size is 1.6 GB now.

Does this agree with the size of your local repo if you run git count-objects -Hv ?

If you have rewritten history in your local repo to further reduce its size and haven't pushed these changes yet, please feel free to let me know when you do so I can run another git gc on the remote repo.

Kind regards,

Hi Theodora,

Thank you. Yes everything seems to be in order now.



Hi Theodora,

My local repository is only 2.6 GB and my remotes is saying it is 4.05 GB.

Could you please run another git gc on the remote server. I have exceeded the 4gb AGAIN.



Hi Shane,

I ran a git gc on the repo that had a size of ~ 4 GB, and its size has been reduced.

Please feel free to let me know if it looks ok now and if you need anything further.

Kind regards,
