    You are always taking a risk when using an old plugin (in my case FOUR years old and 3 major WP core updates behind the curve).

    Still, the reviews looked good and I had hundreds of broken links from deleted files from an image plugin that didn’t completeduring its table updates before crashing. I hadn’t noticed the crash until a few weeks later when I had hundreds of empty squares in my media library.

    After taking backups, I did a non-destructive dry run, which ran successfully and found all the hundreds of broken links. I then used the “Delete attachments pointing to missing image file” option and it cleared everything in one go.

    I am so very grateful for this plugin and wonder why it isn’t in the core of WP as deleting files using FTP for example is very easily done. Anyway, thank you for this plugin.
