OneDrive: Delete files in bulk

I have a problem with synchronization between my PC and office 365 OneDrive cloud and I discovered that syncing issues are due to false positive files that were detected as malicious files (which is not true) because they were named years ago as .Vir via an anti malware tool.

I don't know if there is a way, via command prompt, 3rd party tool or from within Office 365 Onedrive portal, to delete files in bulk in an easy way instead of clicking on each file and delete it manually which will be a nightmare when you have 2100 files!!! I need to get rid of those .vir files to get syncing working again!

Hi Vasil,

Your solution is intact for handling files and folders EXCEPT the search function which didn't work properly (no results found) !!
Any other ideas for searching for *.Vir and deleting them in bulk?
No need for search, just sort/group them by file type?

The .Vir files are scattered everywhere this is the issue...
