Repository size exceeds limit due to a mistake with running BFG


I tried to clean up the repository, of 3.3 GB, but I made a mistake with BFG by not cloning a mirror, but a normal clone. Now I cannot fix or revert this change since the repository is over 4GB. I hope someone can help me with this. I will (most likely) not make this mistake again. Thank you in advance!

Hi David,

I checked the repositories your Bitbucket Cloud account has access to, and I can't see any repo being over the 4 GB limit.

I'm not sure if the automated garbage collection reduced the repo's size, or if you perhaps deleted and recreated the repo.

Do you still need assistance with this issue? If so, could you provide the repo name masked (with some asterisks) so I can identify it and run a garbage collection for it?

Kind regards,

Hi @Theodora Boudale

Thank you for your quick response! I checked today and the repository size was smaller than yesterday. I guess the automated garbage collection reduced the size.

I didnt know the garbage collection was a thing. It seems to be solved now. Thank you for letting me know there is automated garbage collection!
