Media Cleaner

Clean your Media Library and Uploads directory. It has an internal trash and recovery features.

Clean your Media Library from the media which aren't used in any of your posts, gallery and so on. It features an internal trash, moving the files in there temporarily for you to make sure the files aren't actually in used; once checked, you can trash them permanently. Before using this plugin, make sure you have a proper backup of your files and database. This is the most important step on the usage of this plugin as you can't trust any file deletion tools. The Pro version of this plugin brings also scanning to the /uploads folder and will detect which files aren't registered in the Media Library, not used in your content and so on. Retina images are also detected and supported, shortcodes, HTML in sidebars and of course your posts, pages and all post types.

This tool is a knife. I try to make this knife perfect. However, this is still a knife, and in the hands of somebody who doesn't understand it and just use it without thinking, it might end badly. Don't use it you you don't have any backup, or if you don't know what it does.

INCOMPATIBILITY. If you are not using WordPress naturally and using plugin to edit your posts, this plugin will not be able to detect how your images are used. For instance, Visual Composer is not supported as for now.

UNIQUE PLUGIN. Such a plugin is difficult to create and to maintain. If you understand WordPress, you probably know why. This plugin tries its best to help you. Get used to it and you will get awesome results. This is the only plugin to propose those functions and even a dashboard to cleanup your WordPress install from unused files.

DASHBOARD. Those file will be shown in a specific dashboard. At this point, it will be up to you to delete them. Files detected as un-used are added to a specific dashboard where you can choose to trash them. They will be then moved to a trash internal to the plugin. After more testing, you can trash them definitely.

FREE / PRO. The Free version of the plugin works with the media available in your Media Library. The Pro version adds file scanning to your physical /uploads directory.

AGAIN, BE CAREFUL. Again, this plugin deletes files so... be careful! Backup is not only important, it is necessary. Don't use this plugin if you don't understand how WordPress works. This is a knife, you need to understand what it does and how before using it.

It has been tested with WP Retina 2x and WPML.
