I am trying to troubleshoot an issue I am having with my PDM system and I just want to eliminate this as a soruce of error. I'd like to just keep the base part nomenclature (xxx.prt) and remove all the iteration numbers at the end. I know running purge will delete older iterations (leaving me with xxx.prt.5 but not xxx.prt) however in this case I want to do the reverse. Is there any good way to do this?
There is no "command" that will do this. Depending on the situation, what I have done in the past was, using windows file manager, sort by date and delete everything past a certain time. Obviously, this may or may not be your case.
Addition - Genius Tools Purge functionality:
The problem with doing what you want is you will lose the latest changes which are in the xxx.prt.5.
You need to purge the older iterations and then rename the latest iteration to be just xxx.prt.
