My self-managed gitlab is consuming over 100 GB even though my repos are not as big as 5-10 GB max

I checked:

All repos storage size
Deleted all artifacts
Cleared runner cache
Cleared containers stored images

It’s still using above 100 GB
My projects combined don’t make up to 10 GB (that’s too much exaggeration, 5 GB max they should be)

What am I missing?

How can I check docker storage history? And if anything else, please help.

Hi there,

Have you deleted those only over Web UI?

There are many things GitLab only “marks” for deletion, but actually the files are still there. Please have a look at cleanup tasks and garbage collection commands: Clean up Rake tasks | GitLab

Hope this helps.

Kind regards!
