This repository is over the 2.0 GB limit and your contributors are not able to push new commits.

We just now realized we can't push our changes anymore due to our repository going over 2GB size. So, therefore, I went in and deleted a bunch of unneeded files and also added more folders to the .gitignore. I removed more than 1GB of files, but it still doesn't let me push and says I have a 2GB repository. 

I tried using the command line and typed:

git reset --hard HEAD~1
git push --force

But it still doesn't let me. Can someone please help? Thanks

Removing files will not decrease the history of your repository, those files would still be in there. Here are the instructions to reduce the size of your repository, Reduce repository size. The short summary is that you need to undo the last push, then decide to move your large files out and use Git LFS, or clear out your repository history of those files that should not be in there.
