Git LFS (Large File Storage) is a Git extension developed by Atlassian, GitHub, and a few other open source contributors, that reduces the impact of large files in your repository by downloading the relevant versions of them lazily. 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. Git LFS (Large File Storage), an open-source Git extension, will help you. Git LFS stands for Large File Storage and is a tool many developers use to save space when working with binary files. The LFS extension uses a simple technique to avoid your local Git repository from exploding like that: it does not keep all versions of a file on your machine. An LFS icon is shown on files tracked by Git LFS to denote if a file is stored as a blob or as an LFS pointer.
