git gc

git gc .. while useful can be pretty nasty. Make sure that you don’t do a git gc --prune=now unless you really want to clean out your repos. git gc Runs a number of housekeeping tasks within the current repository, such as compressing file revisions (to reduce disk space and increase performance) and removing unreachable objects which may have been created from prior invocations of git add.
