    Does this plugin also delete the images connected to the post? (including the resizes?)

    Right now the plugin will not delete images associated with post. This is there in my todo list. https://github.com/sudar/bulk-delete/issues/7

    But the main problem is that it is very difficult to identify if the images and attachments are used by other posts are not.

    Is this feature very critical for you?

    Yes it was.....
    I had a problem with importing feeds > every time the feed updated, the images were attached as new. So those images are related to a post, but then time 10.... Ended up with a 35gig image storage on the server.
    There are plugins out there that delete orphaned images, but since they are not orphaned I was hoping I could just delete all posts including images and start importing the feeds again the right way.

    I had to delete them through FTP and then do some queries into the database to get rid of the relationships.. Took me all day...

    But your plugin at least was helpful with deleting everything else. So thank you.

    Nice to know that you got things fixed.

    This feature has been there in my todo list for quite sometime now. But since not many people required it, I had set the priority to be low.
