Hi, after using the SharePoint Migration Tool to migrate sites from a SP Server 2013 farm to SP Online, some document libraries have multiple copies of most of their views, which I now have to painstakingly delete. The original view is still there, and then five duplicates with numbers appended. In a library with 20 views that means I have to delete 100 duplicate views manually.

 

Has anyone come across this? How can that be avoided?
