Remove “conflicted copy” files in your Dropbox folder

Here is a quick solution to remove conflicted copies:

#!/usr/bin/env bash

# just print
find . | grep "conflicted copy 2015" | while read i; do echo $i; done

# print and DELETE
#find . | grep "conflicted copy 2015" | while read i; do echo $i; /bin/rm "$i"; done

Put it in your ~/Dropbox folder and launch it. First it will just print the conflicted copies. If you want to get rid of these files (verify!), then uncomment the last line.

The string “2015” is added to narrow the produced list. But normally “conflicted copy” should be enough.
