I understand that redirectors left behind after deleting a file (those 2kb uassets that pile up) are partly so version control doesn’t detect changes in every single referenced file, but is there any way to override that decision and remove some of those redirectors? I have a habit of renaming things while I work out the exact convention to use or which material is best for a job. Sometimes I change my mind. In those cases, I end up unable to go back to the original name unless I delete a redirector manually, potentially leaving references hanging all over the place.
How do I safely remove these? They don’t appear in the content browser and my file browser ends up looking different due to all the redirectors pointing all over the place. It’s like a mine field and I want to clear it once in awhile.
