A synchronisation bug in Google Drive has caused it to treat all my local files as duplicates. So I ended up with a bunch of extra: filename(1) that eat up 10's of GB of space.

How do I search for all of those on my Google Drive (via the web interface) and remove them?


You can search for a specific filename with something like the below image shows using:

Search for filename

You can then use CTRL + A to select all the files displayed and remove them.

That's the best idea I can think of from the web interface side.
