Hi @Srinivasan Subramanian - OIT ,


The files you're looking at are called Git Packfiles. Git periodically tries to save as much space as it can by looking for similar files and storing them in diffs from one version of the file to the next. Without these packfiles, the `.git` folder would be much bigger (but scattered across lots of different files instead).


Hope that helps!
