Request for Garbage Collection

Alexandra Camero September 5, 2023


I had previously pushed in some heavy files and I followed the steps in here to delete them from my history. After the steps, my repo went over 4GB, I would like to request gc to be ran, Anytime is fine. Thank you.

Hello @Alexandra Camero , thank you for reaching out to the Community!

I've manually triggered a Garbage Collection on your repository and managed to reduce its size back to 1.4GB!

Now that GC is completed, I would highly recommend you having everyone on your team removing their old copies of the repository and doing a fresh clone of it. Since the old clones have a dirty history, it's better to delete them, so you don't risk pushing the dangling objects back into your cleaned repository, which would increase its size again.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you, @Alexandra Camero !
