I have folders with hundreds of
xls(x) files that were mass exported from legal e-discovery systems. The filenames in these exports correspond to bates # such as
ABCD_00000002.pdf, ... ,
ABCD_00002000.pdf. These mass exports include a blank
xls(x) file - with both having the exact same filename. E.g.,
ABCD_00000005.xlsx is the xlsx file that was produced in the ediscovery system and
ABCD_00000005.pdf is an extraneous blank pdf file that was created in the mass export.
These extraneous .pdf files probably result from a user error on the part of the people running these mass exports, but I don't usually have control over that side of the process. So I wanted to know if any relatively straightforward way to delete these extraneous .pdf without forcing someone to go through them manually.
