Disk Space Issue

My Disk Space is almost full, but when I run git prune; git gc in console, I get the following error:

error: couldn't write .git/logs/HEAD: No space left on device
error: couldn't write .git/logs/refs/heads/master: No space left on device
error: failed to run reflog

My project name is kakuhou-surgeon, but it is private so let me know if you need me to invite you. Thank you!

Hey @JMGbaum I’ve granted your project additional disk space for ~24 hours to give you the headroom to run the appropriate git commands. It looks like you’re writing to a sqlite file regularly and that’s filling up your git repo, so you may want to add that file to your .gitignore file.

echo 'database.sqlite' >> .gitignore

should do it. Then run your git commands and you should be back within space limits, and your git directory should grow more slowly.

Hope this helps!


Thank you so much! I really appreciate the help!


I’m sorry to bother you, but this happened again @cori.

Hello @JMGbaum,

Can you invite me to your project so I can take a closer look!

Hey @JMGbaum somehow we got our wires crossed on what to put in your .gitignore - you ended up with echo 'database.sqlite' in there, but that line should just read database.sqlite; sorry about that!

I’ve granted you additional space so you can execute the git prune; git gc process again and if you fix up that line in your .gitignore file you should be all set!
