## Disable Git LFS
We used Git LFS to store large files but [switched back to plain git](https://github.com/ufz/ogs/issues/2961). You need to disable Git LFS in your repo:
```bash
git lfs uninstall --local

If you have branches from pre-GitLab times with e.g. newly created LFS files (benchmark files, images, ...) you have to convert them back to plain git:
```bash
git add --renormalize .
git commit -m "Converted LFS files to plain git."
```
Now you have to squash this conversion commit into your original commit which added the files as Git LFS files. In result your branch history should and **must not** have any Git LFS files! Otherwise GitLab will reject the push!

When you are done migrating your branches you need to disable Git LFS in your local repo:
```bash
git lfs uninstall --local
```
