How to specify where Git LFS files will be stored?

I was just wondering if anyone could clear up some confusion I have about using Git Large File Storage.

When creating your new repository, I know how to track certain files with git lfs track, but how do you specify where those files will be stored?

  • Setting a custom path for git private SSH key on linux
  • Why would my git master branch have the current HEAD not be the most recently pushed file?
  • Undo git pull from remote branch on a fresh git repository to a state before git pull
  • Capistrano stops at git:check
  • restore windows command prompt tools after git bash replace them with unix tools
  • Detaching a directory to be modified as a branch elsewere using Git
  • For example, in the project I am working on there are a number of png and wav files. These are being tracked using git lfs track. The Git LFS website says that they are stored on a remote server, but I cannot find out where that information is in our repository.

    In addition, when a second user clones the repo, the project contains only pointers to the LFS objects. How can they find/use the url for the remote where the actual files are stored?

    (We are using Bitbucket and a local system git for our repo.)

  • move to another branch and 'saving' current changes
  • Git solution with multiple projects in C# .NET
  • Gerrit: is there a way to push just the top commit to the same branch?
  • Git auth failing when running npm install as sudo
  • Git - Exclude a config file from post-receive checkout
  • Can't find `HEAD` in git rebase conflict?

    The Git Lfs website says that they are stored on a remote server, but I cannot find out where that information is in our repository.

    They’re not stored in the repository, at least in a technical sense. git-lfs adds a second area, the large file storage area, which is a peer of your repository. The large files are stored there.

    I would have expected BitBucket to present this information in a meaningful way on their website.

    In addition, when a second user clones the repo, the project contains only pointers to the LFS objects.

    They need to install git-lfs. That is the program responsible for downloading and uploading the large file content.

    As far as I understand, by defaul they are stored at Github’s servers. You could also setup a server locally (they provide API documentation and what they call “reference server implementation”) for that, and specify the server in git configuration
