My repository has exceeded the size limit. I've tried to delete some larger files to free up room, however, I am unable to delete remove files from my repository. The ways I've tried to delete the files are:
Any support would be appreciated.
Hi @blacaze ,
I can see one repository over the 2 GB limit from the ones that you have access to.
I ran a git gc on it, however its size has not been reduced.
Committing file deletions will not work in this case, as this will not remove the files from the repo's history and it will not have any effect on the size.
Did the size of this repo increase as a result of one large commit?
E.g. did you accidentally push some large files that you didn't want to be in the repo?
Or do you version in the repo binary/large files throughout its history?
There are two options here:
1. If the repo's size increased because of one large commit, then:
This process is explained here:
When the repo's size is over 2 GB, the only thing that can be pushed is a git reset before the commit that made the repo go over 2 GB. No new commits can be pushed, even if it's commits with file deletions.
2. The second option, if the repo has large files throughout its whole history, would be to rewrite history and
a. either remove any large files that do not need to be versioned, see: https://support.atlassian.com/bitbucket-cloud/docs/maintain-a-git-repository/
b. or, if any large files need to be versioned, move them to Git LFS: https://support.atlassian.com/bitbucket-cloud/docs/use-bfg-to-migrate-a-repo-to-git-lfs/
You will need support's assistance in this case, to temporarily increase the repo size limit so you can push.
You can open a support ticket via https://support.atlassian.com/contact/#/, in "What can we help you with" select "Technical issues and bugs" and then Bitbucket Cloud as product. In "What is the impact to your business?" make sure to select "Level 1" since the repo is over 2 GB and you are blocked.
If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know.
