    Hi, Guys
    I am using GIT for my version control system - however the .git file is growing at an alarming rate.

    Question - which folders can I safely ignore - they appears that Objects folder and its sub folders are the problem but the manifest is in there so I am wondering which sub folders I can safely ignore.

    Kind regards

    Hi, Thanks for the reply -
    I have had a quick look at the documentation and it appears discuss the SVN system (I am using BitBucket a GIT based system). Therefore I simply need a list of folders (and files if necessary) and update the .gitIgnore file according.

    Here is my list of possible folders (within the project folder) to exclude.

    project /Autobackup

    All the rest looks important and should be committed - any comments?

    Kind regards

    You can ignore all files under the Objects folder (the icon will be excluded but it is probably not a big deal).
    The AutoBackups should also be excluded. Other files are needed.
