How big are the files you’re deleting? Can you also check the memory of the git process that’s running? Also, try toggling the “Disable Libgit2” too. If you have a big repo libgit2 will have to load that into memory. 


Working set memory is generally a misleading metric. It includes memory shared by other processes (.Net CLR, git) not the actual memory use of the process.

It wasn't particularly large files, but a lot of them. Couple of 100MB in total.

Where can I find the option to disable libgit2? 

After the delete was done memory use shrunk back to the normal size of a few MB.
