Is there a workaround for selecting bulk files in search?

Nextcloud version (eg, 10.0.2): 11.0.1
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 16.04): 16.04
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): Apache
PHP version (eg, 5.6): 7

So there’s an open ticket referencing the inability to select just the filtered files when ticking the select all box after a search, while that’s being looked into is there a workaround? After having the Android app upload literally thousands of duplicates yesterday I need a way to select all (2), (3), (etc) files in a directory and delete in one go.

I can do this on the underlying file system naturally, but if there’s a way of doing it via the GUI that’d be better.
I expected to see a select all option on the Android client after a search (@andy, @mario) but that doesn’t exist.

Is webdav stable enough to support the deletion of thousands of files?

Open a ticket for Android :stuck_out_tongue: Also, once search is really there (currently, we only have filtering) we can talk
about adding this functionality (which I think is useful).

Done @mario :slight_smile:

I think I may have answered my own question, webdav is handling this absolutely fine.
