NAME         top

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

SYNOPSIS         top

       git prune-packed [-n|--dry-run] [-q|--quiet]

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.

OPTIONS         top

       -n, --dry-run
           Don’t actually remove any objects, only show those that would
           have been removed.

       -q, --quiet
           Squelch the progress indicator.
