Reduce repo size

Hi, I've gone over the repo 4GB size limit. I've git reset back to the commit before the limit, but the repo size isn't updating. What do I do?

Hi @Omer Hodzic,

I can see in our system that your Bitbucket Cloud account has access to a repo that was over the size limit, so I went ahead and ran a git gc for this repo. Its size is 386.5 MB now.

Kind regards,

Please check and let me know if that helps.

I've already gone through that and undid the push but I didn't have delete dangling commits enabled so it hasn't cleared up any space.
