git-prune-packed(1)
===================
NAME
----
git-prune-packed - Remove extra objects that are already in pack files
SYNOPSIS
--------
[verse]
'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.
