Hi Gerard,

When a repo goes over 2 GB, you can follow the steps in the doc that Hana linked, specifically the "Undoing the last push" section, to remove the read-only limitation from the repo.

I went ahead and ran a git gc on this repo and its size went down to 1.5 GB, so you and your team should be able to push now. However, its size is still quite large and it would be a good idea to reduce it further, if possible.

If the increase in size was due to this last commit only with the large file, you can still follow the same steps and reset to the commit before the bad one. Another git gc will be needed after you push that, you can either post here and I can run it, or you can open a support ticket via with priority "Level 1" to get a faster response, if your repo goes again over 2 GB and you are blocked from working.

If you have more large files in the repo that do not need to be versioned, you may want to consider removing them from Git history:

In case you need to version any large files, another option would be to move them to Git LFS:

If you face any issues or have any questions, please feel free to let us know.

Kind regards,

Hi @Gerard Cadenas Montserrat ,

please, see this article how to get rid of the commit with the large file. Basically you need to get the remote repository to the state, in which it was before the large commit file.
