git-annex-drop - remove content of files from repository
git annex drop [path ...]
Drops the content of annexed files from this repository, when possible. git-annex will refuse to drop content if it cannot verify it is safe to do so.
--from=remote Rather than dropping the content of files in the local repository, this option can specify a remote from which the files' contents should be removed. --auto Rather than trying to drop all specified files, drop only files that are not preferred content of the repository. See git-annex-preferred-content(1) --force Use this option with care! It bypasses safety checks, and forces git-annex to delete the content of the specified files, even from the last repository that is storing their content. Data loss can result from using this option. --all -A Rather than specifying a filename or path to drop, this option can be used to drop all available versions of all files. This is the default behavior when running git-annex drop in a bare repository. Note that this bypasses checking the .gitattributes annex.numcopies setting. --branch=ref Drop files in the specified branch or treeish. Note that this bypasses checking the .gitattributes annex.numcopies setting. --unused Drop files found by last run of git-annex unused. Note that this bypasses checking the .gitattributes annex.numcopies setting. --key=keyname Use this option to drop a specified key. Note that this bypasses checking the .gitattributes annex.numcopies setting. file matching options The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files to drop. --jobs=N -JN Runs multiple drop jobs in parallel. This is particularly useful when git-annex has to contact remotes to check if it can drop files. For example: -J4 --batch Enables batch mode, in which lines containing names of files to drop are read from stdin. As each specified file is processed, the usual output is displayed. If a file's content is not present, or it does not match specified matching options, or it is not an annexed file, a blank line is output in response instead. -z Makes the --batch input be delimited by nulls instead of the usual newlines. --json Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object. --json-error-messages Messages that would normally be output to standard error are included in the json instead.
