To reduce the size of a Git repository on Bitbucket, you can try the following steps:

  1. Remove unnecessary files and folders from the repository: Review the contents of the repository and remove any files or directories that are no longer needed. This can help reduce the overall size of the repository.
  2. Use Git's built-in tools for cleaning up the repository: Git has built-in commands that can help clean up unnecessary files and optimize the repository. You can use commands like "git gc", "git prune", and "git-sparse-checkout" to clean up the repository and reduce its size.
  3. Use Git LFS for large files: If your repository contains large files, consider using Git LFS (Large File Storage) to store these files outside of the repository. This can help reduce the size of the repository and improve performance.
  4. Split the repository into smaller parts: If the repository is too large, consider splitting it into smaller repositories based on different components or projects. This can help reduce the overall size of each repository and make it easier to manage.
  5. Use Git's shallow clone feature: Git allows you to perform a shallow clone of a repository, which downloads only the most recent commits. This can help reduce the size of the cloned repository and save disk space.


By following these steps, you can effectively reduce the size of a Git repository on Bitbucket and improve its performance.
