Hi

I have many versions of the same files in my onedrive. cat, cat(1), cat(2).

Is there an easy way to delete all of them at once?

Hi,
yes there is, if you install OneDrive app on your OS and then make your files available there and available offline, then use a 3rd party software to automatically detect duplicate files and delete them, any changes you'll make will automatically sync.
there are many software that do it and I personally tried a bunch of them.

This is not the easy way cause that brings up the problem off having enough physical Drivespace available which is exactly the reason why many Companies chose to migrate Data to the Cloud. Unlike Google Microsoft doesn't seem to like the idea Dupe-File-Finders. I have to say i find this very unnerving!
