20 GB Respository


I have a giant Unity client project. It is 17 gB now, probably will end up being over 50 gB later.

How do I host this? Github doesn’t let you go over 2 gB. Can I host a private server and aim git at it?

Thank you,

I need to find another backup solution since Unity Collab is buggy. Right now I am just copying to zip drives. Git seems like the right choice. The problem is my project is too massive for github.

Thank you,

Sure! In the simplest case you can just do everything over SSH to a remote directory, or if you want HTTPS pull access you can make a bare repository available using a web server. There are also git hosting systems you can host yourself, if you want something more fancy (like a web UI).

If you only need a backup you might be better off looking for a backup tool. Git is designed to store the whole history of your project, forever. Backup tools usually only store the latest version plus those from a certain timespan (or number of backups), which saves space.
