Unable to Upload to repo

Hi all, I was hoping for some assistance, please.

I have created a new Repo for one of our clients. Our developer has all the files locally and is leaving us so I need these pushed into a Github repo. Total size is around 3.5GB

We’re getting a message mentioning that we have reached the max packet size.

I think the problem is that some of the first commits have large files in them, which is causing this error.

 Is there a way around this? This is quite urgent and I need a solution today. 

I have attempted to follow this article without success

@boylenadmin This sounds like something that might be related to your specific account. I would recommend reaching out to GitHub private support at git.io/c for help with this.
