Hello...

Is there a Dreaweaver function that goes thru the entire html directory of a site; & then informs the user which files are no longer utilized by that site?

I have two sites that underwent some seroius evolution in the past year or so; & there are so many graphics & photos & various media in the directories that aren't used anymore...that it would be difficult to go thru each page & look at what's still relevant (& these are huge sites, to boot.)

Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Thanks,

On Site from the menu (or Ctrl + F8) choose check links sitewide. From the show menu choose Orphaned Files. This will list all orphaned (not used) files on the site. You can delete directly from the listing of files. This is DW8, but I seem to remember that is was there on MX 4 also.

that doesn't work...it shows files that are active (being used)...& files that have already been deleted.

I don't know what to do now.

I recreated the site cache first...then it worked.

Thanks,
