How do I locate a file that is linked to a Module item?

I am teaching a class that was ported from a different LMS to Canvas by another teacher. Unfortunately, the port included a lot of redundant files with same or similar names and they were all dumped into the Files Area of Canvas. Even worse, the date associated to all the files was changed to the date they were ported so there is no easy way to decide which is the most current version. I would like to clean up the mess, but there are a lot of items in the Modules area that are direct links to some of those files, and I am having a hard time finding the actual file that corresponds to a particular link because the bread crums only show something like Files > nameoffile.pdf  and not the Folder where it is stored. I could open each file and compare to any possible version or delete everything and start from scratch, but I wonder if I can avoid any of those not-so-simple solutions. 

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks
