Clearing All Favourites

How can I clear my entire favorites list?

At one point I favorited the top level folder of my music library, which recursively added thousands of tracks to my favorites list. Just loading page downloads 200MB of data from volumio and takes forever, and removing any entry from it takes tens of seconds, and can’t be batched as far as I can tell. Unfavouriting everything on the list one by one is a nonstarter, it would take weeks.

I found the favorites list in /data/favourites, this file is 10MB for me, and every time I remove it or reset it to [] it gets repopulated. This happens even if the volumio app is shut down, when I restart the app it repopulates this file.

Is it backing this list up on MyVolumio? Is it stored somewhere else?
