I have a private repository on an academic plan that has hit the 4GB size limit and I am unable to reduce the size with the options described at the suggested https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/xgMvEw link. I have tried enabling the Labs feature and reset with the force push (the latter of which has worked for me in the past, but did not work this time). The repository in question is bitbucket.org/nr*ec*/ec*nb**_*ar, please assist.
I've successfully run garbage collection against your remote repository (nr*ec*/ec*nb**_*ar) in the back-end to clean up any dangling commits.
The repository size has reduced from 1.8GB and is now currently 139.2MB.
Would it be possible for you to check it on your end (by navigating to your Repository > Settings) and see if that has helped?
We want to inform you that we do have a Feature request: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BCLOUD-11593 to provide the option to run the GC from the end-user GUI. This way you need not raise a ticket and wait for the support person to run the GC on your behalf.
Our Dev team is currently working on implementing the feature request and we don't have any ETA for the fix. I would suggest you "Watch" this ticket for future updates from our Dev team.
Hope it helps.
Let me know how it goes.

Hi, Lauren, thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community.
I ran the GC against your repository and managed to reduce its size to 259.9 MB.
I also would like to share with you that we have a feature request to allow users to mark repositories for git GC, as you can check here:
Please consider adding yourself as a watcher to receive the updates as we make progress with this. If you are not familiar with our Feature Request Policy, you can read more about it here.
Feel free to share any additional questions or concerns regarding this case.
