NAME
       git-prune - Prune all unreachable objects from the object database

SYNOPSIS
       git prune [-n] [-v] [--expire <expire>] [--] [<head>...]

DESCRIPTION
	   Note
	   In most cases, users	should run git gc, which calls git prune. See
	   the section "NOTES",	below.

       This runs git fsck --unreachable	using all the refs available in	refs/,
       optionally with additional set of objects specified on the command
       line, and prunes	all unpacked objects unreachable from any of these
       head objects from the object database. In addition, it prunes the
       unpacked	objects	that are also found in packs by	running	git
       prune-packed. It	also removes entries from .git/shallow that are	not
       reachable by any	ref.

       Note that unreachable, packed objects will remain. If this is not
       desired,	see git-repack(1).

OPTIONS
       -n, --dry-run
	   Do not remove anything; just	report what it would remove.

       -v, --verbose
	   Report all removed objects.

       --
	   Do not interpret any	more arguments as options.

       --expire	<time>
	   Only	expire loose objects older than	<time>.

       <head>...
	   In addition to objects reachable from any of	our references,	keep
	   objects reachable from listed <head>s.

EXAMPLE
       To prune	objects	not used by your repository or another that borrows
       from your repository via	its .git/objects/info/alternates:

	   $ git prune $(cd ../another && git rev-parse	--all)

NOTES
       In most cases, users will not need to call git prune directly, but
       should instead call git gc, which handles pruning along with many other
       housekeeping tasks.

       For a description of which objects are considered for pruning, see git
       fsck's --unreachable option.
