  • Resolved drew


    Hello, the plugin was simple to use and it did in fact, free up space! But I noticed there are still tables of old, past deleted plugins not in use and still in the database tables, also seen in the network/site-settings.php. Is there a setting to remove those with this plugin or your premium version, or is this something I have to do manually? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

    Trying to connect particular tables to particular plugins is hard. There’s no automated way to do it – i.e. internally, WP doesn’t actually know which table belongs to which plugin. It is a project we are currently working on, to try to target the most popular plugins. So, it’s not a current feature – but we are working on it.

    Happily, unused tables don’t affect site performance, by their nature: they’re unused. They just occupy some space on disk, but unless you are short of disk space, they can’t make a difference to site speed.
