Mass Delete Card Attachments

There were over 1000 files added to a card in about an hour - same file added over 1000 times. How can I delete all these files since none of them are actually the file that I need?

@Harry Breda when you copy a card you can uncheck the option to include attachments:

@Harry Breda i definitely think copying the relevant details you need from the description and creating a new card, then archiving that is the right option haha. 

You might also find something of value with Bulk Actions Power-Up but i don't think that doesn't anything for attachments.

How did that even happen?

No idea - programming bug or something. There are 1,154 attachments added on September 23 between 10:58 am and 1:06 pm. 

The goal would be to add the final version to satisfy our compliance and archival requirements. 

Realistically I'm archiving the card and moving on. 

Archive the card and move on with your life. lol

Or, if you have the capability you could run a simple API command to loop through the attachments on the card and delete them.
