GIT-PRUNE-PACKED(1) Git Manual GIT-PRUNE-PACKED(1)

NAME git-prune-packed - Remove extra objects that are already in pack files

SYNOPSIS git prune-packed [-n|--dry-run] [-q|--quiet]

DESCRIPTION This program searches the $GIT_OBJECT_DIR for all objects that currently exist in a pack file as well as the independent object directories.

All such extra objects are removed.

A pack is a collection of objects, individually compressed, with delta compression applied, stored in a single file, with an associated index file.

Packs are used to reduce the load on mirror systems, backup engines, disk storage, etc.

OPTIONS -n, --dry-run Dont actually remove any objects, only show those that would have been removed.

-q, --quiet Squelch the progress indicator.
