how do you remove a folder in stash

I have a bin and obj folder set in .gitignore however it was checked-in to begin with. How can I delete that folder in stash? 

Thanks for the help

You need to clone the repository if you have not done this already, delete the folders and commit+push the change.

This will delete the file moving forward. There is of course no good way to delete the file's existence in previous commits.

The folder can be deleted from the history with filter-branch http://git-scm.com/docs/git-filter-branch , but I think that is not necessary here (unless it contains a large amount of binary data).

cool. thank you
