Repository is over the size limit (4 GB) and will not accept further additions.


I had several big files and had many many revisions of those files checked in. I guess that led to the Repository is over the size limit (4 GB) and will not accept further additions warning.

I've deleted all big files in local and when I tried to push, I am getting a warning 

remote: Repository is over the size limit (4 GB) and will not accept further additions. again.


any idea?

Hi @Optiontrading_app and welcome to the community.

I ran a git gc for your repo that was over the 4 GB limit, its size is 28.6 MB now.

Does this agree with the size of your local repo, if you run git count-objects -Hv ?

We have a feature request to allow users to run a git gc for their remote repos:

I would suggest adding your vote to the feature request (by selecting the Vote for this issue link) if you'd be interested in that feature. You can also add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link) if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.

Kind regards,

it worked! thanks.

You are very welcome! Please feel free to reach out if you ever need anything else.

Kind regards,

Hi @Optiontrading_app 

Welcome to the Community!!

You will need to reduce the size of the repository in order to continue working with that,

Please follow the guide here

You may need to consider removing binary files or tracking them via LFS!!


i I've already reduced the size of the repository. I deleted the files in my local branch. I am trying to push the deletion to bitbucket but I can't do so because I am over 4gb right now.

You will need to raise the Atlassian Support ticket in order to get assistance on this one!!
