NAMEgit-prune - Prune all unreachable objects from the object database
SYNOPSISgit-prune [-n] [--] [<head>...]
DESCRIPTIONThis runs git-fsck --unreachable using all the refs available in $GIT_DIR/refs, optionally with additional set of objects specified on the command line, and prunes all 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.
- Do not remove anything; just report what it would remove.
- Do not interpret any more arguments as options.
- In addition to objects reachable from any of our references, keep objects reachable from listed <head>s.
EXAMPLETo prune objects not used by your repository nor another that borrows from your repository via its .git/objects/info/alternates:
.ft C $ git prune $(cd ../another && $(git-rev-parse --all)) .ft
