Git Large File Storage (LFS) replaces large files such as audio samples, videos, datasets, and graphics with text pointers inside Git, while storing the file contents on a remote server like GitHub.com or GitHub Enterprise.

Features

  • Large file versioning: Version large files-even those as large as a couple GB in size-with Git.
  • More repository space: Host more in your Git repositories. External file storage makes it easy to keep your repository at a manageable size.
  • Faster cloning and fetching: Download less data. This means faster cloning and fetching from repositories that deal with large files.
  • Same Git workflow: Work like you always do on Git-no need for additional commands, secondary storage systems, or toolsets.
  • Same access controls and permissions: Keep the same access controls and permissions for large files as the rest of your Git repository when working with a remote host like GitHub.

To install Git Large File Storage (Install), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install git-lfs.install

To upgrade Git Large File Storage (Install), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade git-lfs.install

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
