NAME

git-annex dropkey - drops annexed content for specified keys

SYNOPSIS

git annex dropkey [key ...]

DESCRIPTION

This plumbing-level command drops the annexed data for the specified keys from this repository.

This can be used to drop content for arbitrary keys, which do not need to have a file in the git repository pointing at them.

Warning: This command does not check that enough other copies of the content exist; using it can easily result in data loss.

OPTIONS

  • --batch

    Enables batch mode, in which lines containing keys to drop are read from stdin.

  • --json

    Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.
