NAME

git-prune-packed - Remove extra objects that are already in pack files  

SYNOPSIS

git-prune-packed [-n] [-q]  

DESCRIPTION

This program searches the $GIT_OBJECT_DIR 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

Don't actually remove any objects, only show those that would have been removed.

-q

Squelch the progress indicator.
