Hi, I have a GitLab Repo where I am storing some binary files. Over time, with multiple commits for each binary file, the size of the repo has grown substantially. In an attempt to reduce the size of the repo by getting rid of all the old versions of the files (I am only interested in the latest version of each) I followed this guide: https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/project/repository/reducing_the_repo_size_using_git.html.
While the repo size appeared to be smaller, the indicated storage used did not change. I also thought that performing the actions in the guide would keep the latest version of each binary file, however it removed them all; including the latest versions.
Am I doing something wrong ?
P.S. I know that it is bad practice to store binary files in the first place.
