Commit problem - Github says that my files are large by mistake

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi all,

This is my first post here, so I hope that I am in the right place. I have searched for the solution for this problem, but without success.

So, below is the image of the HTML website that I have built on my HDD:


As you can see, there are 43 files, with total size of 6.33MB. When I try to upload these files to repository, I get the message that some files are too big, and only 14 files are recognized (picture below)2.PNG

Does anybody know what is the problem?

Re: Commit problem - Github says that my files are large by mistake

The "using github" forum is probably more appropriate. But no problem.


You're using drag-and-drop which I've found problematic in the past (I get similar behavior as you describe occasionally). Try dragging only a few of the files at a time, or at worst, one-by-one. You may have one file which is causing the problem and you may have to use a different mechanism to upload it.


Please follow-up to let us know how you made out. For good karma, mark a reply as the answer if it helped!
