How can I create a new version (file) of the design system that does not link components to old file?

So I’m working on updating our design system. We already have one file for 0.9.0, 1.1.0 and now I’m making the 2.0.0. file.
The way I do this is by exporting the file into a .fig file. Then import it and renaming it to 2.0.0.

The problem I seem to face now is that components still links to 0.9 and 1.1.
How can I make the components, colors, fonts etc. become master in my new file and not link to previous files?

I will answer my own question.
After some digging around, I discovered the Swap Library function.

Here I could swap components linked to 1.0.0 with identical components in 2.0.0 and voila I “disconnected” any links to old library.
