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


Thank you!  - Adam

Re: Unable to Upload to repo

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