    there is some mismatch between the media library and the real "uploads" folder. Is there a plugin to reindex the files stored on the server in the WordPress database?

    You could try and change the paths in your sql file.

    Also, make sure you have the correct upload path in Settings - Media, in wp-config.php and on your server configuration.

    The path is the same and correct. But somehow some files are missing. Assumption: Old database backup was used and in the meantime some files were added ...

    So there is no plugin available?

    None that I know of. If you don't have a recent back-up with everything properly working, I don't know how else you could get the files back.

    Talk to your hosting provider, there may be a chance for them to hel you out.

    Thanks for your suggestion. Currently I delete unused pictures from the website/media gallery and readd it if some files are used (and needed in the media gallery).
