    Hi, i'm using this plugins.
    It seems to work fine, but the images are still there. It search for them, i check them and click delete, it says delete ok but it didn't delete them.

    And when i search again, they appear again.

    Yes, I have the same problem with this plugin. It says all the images I had checked previously are successfully deleted but I still have them on the server (File Manager sees them and Filezilla sees them all).

    Only in my case when I ask the plugin to make a new scan of my media library there are no those "deleted" images in the resulting list: the plugin doesn't see them among the uploads.

    Hi Thalskarth,

    Sorry for the long delay in respond time. I'm not sure why the plugin would report the images having been deleted but then show them again in the list. I would need to see the plugin in action on your site (or a copy of your site if you could bundle it up in a zip file and a db dump) to be able to diagnose the problem. I cannot guarantee any timeframe for being able to do this either, since this is a free plugin and my time is quite taken by my paid work.

    anapest, if the upload directory permissions have been changed in a way that prevents the image from being deleted from the directory the plugin fails nicely and simply deletes it from the database so that you don't have to deal with seeing it in WordPress anymore.
