Repository size warning still displayed after cleanup & push with BFG


Hi, I cleaned up my repository <workspace-id/repo-name removed> and pushed it to the cloud, but I'm still getting the large repository warning.

Please run a git gc on the remote to clean up the server.  Thank you!

Hi @Matt Reedy and welcome to the community!

I ran a git gc on the repo and its size is 499.4 KB now. Does this agree with the size of your local repo?

Just a heads up, I removed the workspace-id and repo name from your post to protect your privacy.

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

Kind regards,

Thank you! Yes, that size agrees with my local repo.  

I appreciate your help!
