Export big Repo

Hello guys,

i try to export my repo on gitlab which is 9.2 GB big. After few hours i get the error:

Project couldn’t be exported.

The errors we encountered were:

gzip: stdout: No space left on device tar: [FILTERED] Wrote only 4096 of 10240 bytes tar: Child returned status 1 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
Unable to save [FILTERED] into [FILTERED]

Someone able to help me what i can do?

I am currently facing exact same issue. Do you find the solution?

Sounds to me that if you are getting such error message, then the repo is bigger than the total of free space available on the server. Therefore, if the repo is 9.2GB it’s attempting to create a tar/zip archive to export. Therefore, the server will need at least 9.2GB of free space or more if attempting to export multiple repo’s at the same time.
