Repository size exceeds limit

Hi, we got that

This repository is over the 2.0 GB limit and your contributors are not able to push new commits. To resolve this, reduce the repository size.

But git count-objects:

count: 0 
size: 0 bytes
in-pack: 78255
packs: 1
size-pack: 981.66 MiB
prune-packable: 0
garbage: 0
size-garbage: 0 bytes


Thanks and regards, Itamar

Hi @Itamar Silva ,

I ran a git gc for this repo and its size has been reduced to 990.2 MB.

Please feel free to let me know if things are ok now and if you need anything further.

Kind regards,

Hi @Theodora Boudale ,
The repo went back to above 1gb, almost 2gb.
Could you help me again?

Thanks and regards, Itamar

Hi @Itamar Silva ,

I can see that you have opened a support ticket about this issue as well, another git gc was run by the support team before I got to your reply and the repo's size has been reduced even further.

Have you been rewriting history in the repo and removing files from Git history? If so, that would explain the remote repo's current size being smaller than 981.66 MiB.

Kind regards,

Hi @Theodora Boudale 

I rewrote history in the repo and removing files from Git history using BFG. I think my problem was solved.

Thanks for all

Thanks for answer, I think the repo needs remote git gc.
