Marten KoppScript for extracting masks

Hi guys,

I dont know if I gave this question the right title.
My problem is as follows:

I got a logo in a Pre-comp (source). I took this Pre-comp in a new Comp (source_masked_01) and gave this one about 200 masks. Then I duplicated this new Comp (source_masked_01, source_masked_02, source_masked_03 etc).

My goal is to get 200 comps with one mask each. So source_masked_01 need to have "Mask 01", source_masked_02 "mask 02".

Is there an easy way to do this besides opening all 200 comps and deleting the remaining 199 masks for each comp manually?

Asked a bit to soon. This might look like be able to do the trick partially:

I only have to precompose every layer then :)
