We’re working on a game and we’re storing the code and assets in a GitLab repo. Today we got this message on a push: GitLab: Your push to this repository would cause it to exceed the size limit of 11 GB so it has been rejected. Please contact your GitLab administrator for more information.
I removed 4GB of old assets and tried to push again, but I got the same message.
I’ve also tried running housekeeping on the project but it said that housekeeping has already been ran in the last 60 minutes, even though nobody did that (I’m the only master on the project).
On GitLab.com I also deleted a branch that held 1GB of assets, the repo size didn’t go down. The branch was not merged into any other branches.
What is the correct way to remove old files from the repo and reduce its size so we can continue to push to the repo?
