was looking for something to reduce the size of backups with a load of obsolete files in the upload folder. This did the job perfectly!

Works fine!

This is the only plugin of this sort I found that actually does something I can understand - although its options are well hidden...
It doesn't fully delete selected files but moves them to another folder and you are then free either to restore them if something goes wrong or fully delete them by FTP if they are really useless.
Thanks!

Works perfectly. Not sure why the negative reviews

Needed to trim down the size of one of my blogs so I could migrate it. Found 2000+ orphaned media items and got rid of them quick. Reduced my total migration size from 40 MB to 15MB. VERY HAPPY!

USE CAUTION
By , for WP 3.5.1

WP Media Cleaner failed to recognize files that were attached to slider plugins that link to pages, and failed to recognize images that are manually attached to a page in WP media library but are not present on a page or post. There are no filtering options, one has to manually check each file to be sure it's not important, and I found that manually using the WP image library / unattached files menu and tools was just as fast. Therefore I found it pretty much useless and even dangerous for a novice.
WP Media Cleaner needs more development before I would consider it a useful plugin for a business website. It may work fine for basic bloggers and those using their site to present their photographic images.
Yes it's a "simple" plugin but all developers should offer clear instructions on use for those with little experience with WP and plugins. This developer does not. The plugin home page is simply the authors personal website.

Worked and freed 3GO
By Plugin Author, for WP 3.5.1

Tested with 2 personal themes, the WordPress official themes, and the most popular plugins, on 2-3 years old running websites. It works well and removed 3GO of useless media and files.
