How to clean up user catalog?

Recommended Posts

Not sure how i have so many duplicate user libraries but i do.

It takes forever to delete these.

Is there a way to clean these up?

I suspect it is slowing down my library from opening.

 

Thanks

Just drag the ones you don't want down into the trash can folder, one right click

there and select delete and presto. all gone.

Thanks Jere, i can do this for some of the small folders, but i have some very large folders that are duplicated.

I have 6 texture folders with over 14,000 objects in each...so i select and right click and delete file, ca copies items first and then deleted them, it takes about 15-20 mins to do this for just one.

 

I thought there might be a location on my drive that i could delete duplicates easier.

They are in the CA Data file, but only Chief can open the calibz. file.

 

Interestingly, when I clicked on the file in the data folder, it just added then

to my user lib. and now I have duplicates to delete  :o

 

Live and learn (I will keep telling myself).

I have so many duplicate folders i cant tell if i am coming or going.  

I have 3 folders called libraries under my user catalog and each one has every folder that is already under user catalog as well as 5 texture folders, crazy!
