My team and I have a 10 GB+ project we would like to push to an existing Github Repository. It has many directories, sub-directories, and files. I have tried both visual tools as well as command line tools (gitbash) to get this done but I have not been successful. We have tried many times with different results.
1 attempt result) Once, the project was pushed but had a folder icon with an arrow on it. We were not able to access anything else in the project.
2 attempt result) From the visual tool it would give an error similar to “cannot publish to repository”.
3 attempt result ) From command line, the process would get hung up to a percentage and never complete the process.
We have considered splitting the project and uploading folder by folder, but not only does this seem like overkill, but I am concerned since the project is this large, this opens the door to potential dependency issues when another authorized user tries to download (i.e. project will not build properly if a dependency is missing), so I would like to avoid this if possible.
I am a novice using Github and have been successful in adding, committing and pushing, but I have not experienced these type of issues before.
Any help or input is welcome.
Thanks you Github community,
