what's the fastest way to do this? I know it's incorrect, but it's really a major pain to modify the referenced workbooks one-by-one.

    For cases like this, I recommend using the REST API to delete the work book. This creates a programatic option instead of having to click so many workbooks manually to delete the children and parent.

    The first attempt will fail due to the dependencies, but each of the dependencies will be listed in the results. Then you can use the REST API to delete these children too. This can be scripted fairly easily using bash if you're comfortable with creating scripts.

    You can always move the workbook to another folder and named "deprecated" or "archive".
