NAME         top

       git-unpack-objects - Unpack objects from a packed archive

SYNOPSIS         top

       git unpack-objects [-n] [-q] [-r] [--strict]

DESCRIPTION         top

       Read a packed archive (.pack) from the standard input, expanding the
       objects contained within and writing them into the repository in
       "loose" (one object per file) format.

       Objects that already exist in the repository will not be unpacked
       from the packfile. Therefore, nothing will be unpacked if you use
       this command on a packfile that exists within the target repository.

       See git-repack(1) for options to generate new packs and replace
       existing ones.

           The command usually shows percentage progress. This flag
           suppresses it.

           When unpacking a corrupt packfile, the command dies at the first
           corruption. This flag tells it to keep going and make the best
           effort to recover as many objects as possible.

           Don’t write objects with broken content or links.

           Die, if the pack is larger than <size>.
