remove unneeded files

We're moving to a new version for out software, for that version I copied the entire projectsuite folder and renamed it.

(Basically creating a new projectsuite in the process).

Now when I'm looking through all the files within that folder I see so many files that are unused or copies of other projectfiles.

 

I want to clean up this folder without removing necessary files. is there any way to see what files aren't used without trail and error?

 

as an example within 1 project folder inside the suite folder:

it seems like most of these are unneeded

 

EDIT: this also counts for keywordtests, I've found a few that have been removed from the projects but are still in the files

    That gives me te extensions but a lot of files have the same extension but a slightly different name.

    Files with extension .orig or .~tc are not mentioned in the topic, therefore, they are not needed by the project.

    Alright thanks, for the double named ones I'll just move them to another folder and if tomorrow all is good then I'll delete the folder.

    Turns out even that project file in that folder was a copy, the original is in the suite folder
