I was working on having my company's Box files backed up to an on-prem NAS server.
The server ran a sync (not Box Sync, just a sync between my server and Box), and it accidentally restored old files that were deleted. No new files were affected (at least it looks like we're good), but there are redundant and once deleted files hanging around in our folders now.
I changed the settings on the NAS, so the two-way sync is no longer active. It's set to update itself with changes from Box, but not the other way around.
I'm not well versed in APIs, so my "fix" would be to run a report of all the changes for that period and delete these re-uploaded files one-by-one. Does anyone know of an easier way to clean up this mess?
