SYNOPSISgit annex drop [path ...]
DESCRIPTIONDrops the content of annexed files from this repository, when possible.
git-annex will refuse to drop content if it cannot verify it is safe to do so.
- Rather than dropping the content of files in the local repository, this option can specify a remote from which the files' contents should be removed.
- Rather than trying to drop all specified files, drop only files that are not preferred content of the repository. See git-annex-preferred-content(1)
- Use this option with care! It bypasses safety checks, and forces git-annex to delete the content of the specified files, even from the last repository that is storing their content. Data loss can result from using this option.
- Rather than specifying a filename or path to drop, this option can be used to drop all available versions of all files.
- This is the default behavior when running git-annex drop in a bare repository.
- Drop files found by last run of git-annex unused.
- Use this option to drop a specified key.
- file matching options
- The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files to drop.
- --jobs=N -JN
- Runs multiple drop jobs in parallel. This is particularly useful when git-annex has to contact remotes to check if it can drop files. For example: -J4
