Repository is in read only mode (over 2 GB size limit).

I've reduced .pack file from 1GB to 40mb on .git directory, but i cannot push it to git because of this error "Repository is in read only mode (over 2 GB size limit)". What should I do in this case?

Hi Paweł, welcome to the Community!

I've checked your repos but I couldn't find one that was even close to the 2GB, are you still experiencing this issue? If you are, can you confirm if this repository belongs to the Bitbucket Cloud account associated to this email address? If it's a different one, can you give us the username and repo name?

Kind regards,


For others experiencing this, please follow the guide mentioned in the error message. It has instructions on how to reduce the repository size below the 2GB limit, and how to optimise repository size in general.
