Weird Disk Issue

Look I have been only adding small files and before the disk was 42%. But somehow the disk now becomes 67%? Is there a virus infecting the disk or what? Why is it using disk space so fast?

Keep in mind that the Glitch Disk is quite small, each non-boosted project only has about 200mb of space.

but i have been only adding small files like images and small changes to js files
btw I might run out of posts for today
My image is more like 50kb rather than 50mb

Images can be quite big you know.

it probably takes up on 1-3 mb of space that’s not the solution to a 50mb gap

Unless you are running very low on space, I wouldn’t worry on how much space your disk has left.

You can always use git to reduce some of the space:

git gc;git prune

Run that in your project’s terminal.

what is this meaning

git gc;git prune Counting objects: 133, done. Delta compression using up to 4 threads. Compressing objects: 100% (99/99), done. Writing objects: 100% (133/133), done. Total 133 (delta 49), reused 74 (delta 22)

but it did reduce the size though…

It just compresses objects on the disk to take up less space.

I was having a similar issue, and I managed to find a workaround, this may help you: Using Git Hooks to automate server-side stuff, if you are still having the problem :smiley:
