git-annex-dropkey(1)         General Commands Manual        git-annex-dropkey(1)



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.

       --json-error-messages
              Messages that would normally be output to standard error are
              included in the json instead.
