I also recommend .zip ping the fonts in a 2nd backup to double down, just in case.

As anyone with iTunes knows, it can be a bitch sometimes. 12 years ago I committed ALL my CDs to Apple lossless format and purged my collection in favor of digital. For some reason, iTunes duped my collection during a transfer from a failing NAS to a newer NAS, and now I have a second copy of each file with a -1 after it. There's 19,000+ files, in thousands of folders and subfolders, so manually deleting them is really NOT an option.

So they are on a Mac disk and you want to delete them and not rename them? From terminal navigate to the folder where they are located and enter this: rm *'-1'*

That will delete all files that have -1 in the name.

No. They are on a NAS, which I believe is Linux.

You can do it pretty much the same way on Linux from the command line. Just need to make sure ssh is enabled on the NAS and then SSH into it from Windows or a Mac.
