- Why has my repository size increased?
- After migrating from Collaborate to Plastic, my repository has increased in size.
After the migration from Unity Collaborate to Plastic SCM, you may notice that the size of your project has grown. This can be anywhere from a few kilobytes to more than 10 gigabytes. This is because Collaborate only calculates the size by the project's current version, whereas Plastic calculates size from the whole history.
This means that the older the repository is, the bigger the size will be when migrated to Plastic because more changes are stored.
An increase in repository size is expected behavior for migration.
If you want to keep your project history, use the migration tool to move your project from Collaborate to Plastic.
If you are concerned about an increase in cost due to the increase in project size after migration, please read the Knowledge Base article, 'Will I need to pay more after migrating from Collaborate to Plastic?'.
If you don't want to keep the history of your project, you can upload your project to Plastic without the migration tool. This way, you won't keep the project history, and your repo size won't increase.
To move your project to Plastic as it is without the history, follow the steps below:
- Open the project and disable Collaborate via the Services window. Window > General > Services > Collaborate and toggle off.
- Close Unity and make a new Plastic repository and workspace to house your project.
- Do initial set up on your repository (you may want to use an ignore.conf file that is specific to Unity projects).
- Copy and paste your project into your new workspace.
- Check the content and continue working with the new workspace.
