How to remove a file completely from git repository history
After I added a huge file into my local git repo and was pushing to remote repo, I got the following error message:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

You may want to try Git Large File Storage - https://git-lfs.github.com. remote: error: File daily/perf_test/isolate-0x10268f000-v8.log is 423.56 MB; this exceeds GitHub Enterprise's file size limit of 100.00 MB
Then I deleted the file from local repo and tried again. However I still got the same error. After that I realize the problem is: the huge file is in my local git history. I need to remove it from history completely.
