Atlassian Community Hero Image Collage

Repository limit exceeded, rebased but warning still there.


Hello all,

This is my first question, so apologize for any misunderstandings.

First, I made a mistake and pushed images which are too heavy for the repository, so the space limit was reached.

After that I reset the repository to the commit before the issue happened (reset 21 commits). The I made a rebase dropping the unwanted commits. This would theoretically solve it, because remote master has been reset.

Basically I followed the instructions from bitbucket documentation:

$ git branch no_images
$ git reset --soft HEAD~20
$ git push --force (up to date)
$ git merge --ff-only no_images
$ git branch -d no_images
$ git push origin master <returns error, space exceeded remote rejected>

At this point my commits are a straight line just like before, but the commits containing image folders were removed.

However, my push are always refused, why?

How do I fix it?

Hello @Gabriel Peixoto de Carvalho ,

Welcome to the Community.

I kicked off forced garbage collection in your repository which reduced its size.

GC is an expensive operation so it doesn't run after every push, this is why there's a delay when reduced size is reflected in Bitbucket. However, if you hit the write limit by pushing a huge file, you indeed can't push new commits.

Anyway, now your repository should be accessible. Let me know if that worked.


Thank you @Daniil Penkin

It solved my issue, I could push new commits.

Yeah, this was totally my fault, I did not consider space limit and I thought that the images would not be so heavy.

Again, thank you very much for the quick response.
