Repo Size GC Help

Good morning,

I've crossed into the "warning zone" of repo size at just over 2GB. I've been running garbage collection, deleting history, and removing large files locally but have been unable to reduce the repository size below this threshold. Would it be possible for someone to run garbage collection for me and see if that reduces the repository size?

Thanks so much,

Hi Chris,

I see two repositories that have a size of around 2 GB (from the ones you have access to):

  • The first one belongs to the workspace associated with your Bitbucket account.
  • The second one belongs to another workspace you are an admin of.

I ran a git gc for both of them and their size has been reduced. Can you see the updated size now in Repository settings?

Kind regards,

Thank you so much, Theodora. This is all set and the ticket can be closed. Appreciate the help!

Hi Chris,

You are very welcome, I'm glad to have helped!

I also wanted to let you know that we have a feature request to allow users to run a git gc for their remote repos:

You can add your vote to that feature request and also add yourself as a watcher if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.

Kind regards,

Hello, @Chris Campion ! Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I'm going to escalate so someone from Atlassian will read this.  Be prepared with the repository URL. You can add as a reply showing only the last few characters.
