I have been copying files back and forth from my computer to the server. I realised this copies some images in the media folder that are not actually use
You might want to take a look at the Umbraco Pro product - Concierge which is capable of showing dependencies on files so you can tell if it's safe to delete a file or not.
Thanks Matt. Would you know how to do it manually? I'm a developer, I'd like to know the database. Or is there some kind of documentation for the database?
I found it! http://blog.hendyracher.co.uk/umbraco-database-part-1/
To find all the files that are being used:
SELECT contentNodeId, alias, dataNvarchar AS umbracoFilenameFROM cmsPropertyDataINNER JOIN cmsPropertyType ON cmsPropertyData.propertytypeid = cmsPropertyType.idWHERE cmsPropertyType.dataTypeId = -90
Now I know, to clean up unused files, you scan for all files under the media folder that are not found in the result above. :)
Hello, I've made a script with Visual Studio to check for unregistered media files. Hope it helps.
take a look at this: https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/mediacleaner/
it is compatible with all the database types and integrated in the Umbraco Backoffice.
This extension looks good, but using 7.10.2 I can't get it to complete a scan without timing out -- admittedly I'm attempting to clean-up almost 6000 media items. Can you extend the timeout period?
