Hi, @Marco Mantoanelli! Welcome to the community! 

I ran the GC against your repository and managed to reduce its size to 287.4 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.

Kind regards,

Hi @Caroline R

Hello @Tommy Dwi Putranto ,

Checking our internal tools I've noticed your repository is already under 2GB. In case you still need a GC to be run on our side, I would like to ask if you could please create a new question for your issue, as a question can become cluttered and difficult to follow if we try to troubleshoot multiple users’ issues in it.

Thank you, @Tommy Dwi Putranto .

Kind regards,

Patrik S

Hello, @Marco Mantoanelli 

I'm going to ping someone from Atlassian to see if manually doing garbage collection can help you out.

Hello @Robert Wen_ReleaseTEAM_
thanks a lot!

Looking forward for any updates from support :)
