User patches: optimal approach to clean up duplicates

Hey all,

After grabbing all the NS2 patches on PatchStorage, I realized upon importing them, that... for the ones I already had installed... duplicates were added w/ the string "-2" added to the filename. What does the community recommend for quickly cleaning up and de-duplicating?



  • Maybe try accessing it from a computer through WebDAV and search and destroy with some app? Have to be careful, though – ”-2” isn’t an uncommon string.

  • my weapon of choice would be simply Apple Files ... delete all duplicates.. and don't forget also "delete deleted files" (Recently Deleted > Select > Delete All) in Apple Files app before you run again NS otherwise all deleted files will re-appear there again :-)
