Working with large files
A Git repository contains every version of every file. But for some file types, this is not practical. Multiple revisions of large files increase the clone and fetch times for other users of a repository.
Conditions for large files
GitHub Enterprise will warn you when pushing files larger than 50 MB. You will not be allowed to push files larger than 100 MB.
Removing files from a repository's history
To remove a large file from your repository, you must completely remove it from your local repository and from your GitHub Enterprise Server instance.
Distributing large binaries
Some projects require distributing large files, such as binaries or installers, in addition to distributing source code.
