Remove extra objects that are already in pack files
git prune-packed [-n | --dry-run] [-q | --quiet]
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.
- -n, --dry-run
Don’t actually remove any objects, only show those that would have been removed.
- -q, --quiet
Squelch the progress indicator.
