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_DIRECTORY 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
Don’t actually remove any objects, only show those that would have been removed.
-q, --quiet
Squelch the progress indicator.
