Hi, a user (actually the owner of a repo I am an admin in) just mistakenly pushed a .FBX file containing ~700MB of textures to our repo, along with several other large texture files. Following this I was unable to fetch the repo, or even to view the Commit page for that commit - the webpage timed out. I advised them to make a local backup of their branch and then deleted the offending branch from the repo in BitBucket, as I couldn't fetch it myself to reset the branch.
This has allowed me to fetch the repo again, but I am unable to push as the repo is now 4.58GB, over the 4GB limit - we were at around 1.5GB before.
I have turned on, and asked them to turn on, "Delete dangling commits when over size limit", but this has had no effect. This page says to raise a support ticket to run git gc on the repo, but I cannot see how to do that, as the support page directs me here.
In the near future I will be setting us up with LFS - I could just really do to get things moving again right now!
Welcome to the Bitbucket Cloud community! :)
The reason you have been directed here is because you have contacted us from a free workspace - Free workspaces are only entitled to support from our Bitbucket Cloud community except if the issue relates to invitations for users not being received.
I have performed a garbage collection in the backend to reduce your repository size from 4.58GB to 783.1MB.
I would suggest following the below article in future for when you need to convert to GIT LFS:
Hope this helps.
