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. SEE ALSO

NAME
git-prune - Prune all unreachable objects from the object database SYNOPSIS
git prune [-n] [-v] [--progress] [--expire <time>] [--] [<head>...] DESCRIPTION
Note In most cases, users should run git gc, which calls git prune. See the section "NOTES", below. This runs git fsck --unreachable using all the refs available in refs/, optionally with additional set of objects specified on the command line, and prunes all unpacked objects unreachable from any of these head objects from the object database. In addition, it prunes the unpacked objects that are also found in packs by running git prune-packed. It also removes entries from .git/shallow that are not reachable by any ref. Note that unreachable, packed objects will remain. If this is not desired, see git-repack(1). OPTIONS
-n, --dry-run Do not remove anything; just report what it would remove. -v, --verbose Report all removed objects. --progress Show progress. --expire <time> Only expire loose objects older than <time>. -- Do not interpret any more arguments as options. <head>... In addition to objects reachable from any of our references, keep objects reachable from listed <head>s. EXAMPLE
To prune objects not used by your repository or another that borrows from your repository via its .git/objects/info/alternates: $ git prune $(cd ../another && git rev-parse --all) NOTES
In most cases, users will not need to call git prune directly, but should instead call git gc, which handles pruning along with many other housekeeping tasks. For a description of which objects are considered for pruning, see git fsck's --unreachable option. SEE ALSO
