I had made some workflows that automatically moved my routers backup to a backup folder, but since I’ve switched from DD-WRT to OpenWrt, and I’m not using two routers but only one, I want to delete them. The problem is that I absolutely don’t remember where I put those workflows but I know that are somewhere on my disk since every time I download a file, the Automator icon appears on my menubar:
And -second trouble- I also don’t remember the name of them. So I searched for any workflow file using Spotlight on my Finder, but Spotlight has found only one, and I remember I have created more than one (probably the others are inside some hidden-to-Spotlight folders).
Here’s where the very useful
mdfind command comes in handy, just write:
Home@iMac / % mdfind -onlyin /Users/Home workflow ...[lots of files]... /Users/Home/Library/Workflows/Applications/Folder Actions/R7800 backup.workflow /Users/Home/Library/Workflows/Applications/Folder Actions/R7000 backup.workflow /Users/Home/Library/Workflows/Applications/Folder Actions/WAN backup.workflow /Users/Home/Library/Workflows/Applications/Folder Actions/Pi-Hole backup.workflow /Users/Home/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~Automator/Documents/Quit all.workflow /Users/Home/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~Automator/Documents/Convert to jpg.workflow /Users/Home/Documents/Vari/DD-WRT/R7800/R7000 backup.workflow Home@iMac / %
-onlyin specifies the directory obviously)
rm them! Or use the Finder to delete them if you want to put some garbage in your .Trash folder because you use it has a backup (don’t do it )
