Does not work well with ProPhoto
By , for WP 4.3.1

This plugin deleted a LOT of images that were actually in use. It could be the ProPhoto theme, which has its own way of doing things, or or it could just be buggy. I won't be using it again.

Reduced size of dtatabase and uploads folder incredibly well

THANK YOU so much to the author of this fantastic plugin.

It is one of the best ways of optimising wordpress I've ever come across.

One of my photography sites has 22,000 individual images, but the number of files (inodes) created in total was a ridiculously bloated 90,000. I was able to reduce this by 65%.

My database was also a whopping 112MB and I've now reduced it to 44.5 MB.

Some of the plugins I was using created additional images and the scan picked up all the ones that weren't being used and I was able to delete them 100 at a time ... now my web host likes me again ;-)

Of course, like the author recommends, please take a backup of your site just to make sure you don't delete anything accidentally. There is an inbuilt image backup system incorporated with this plugin if you are unsure how to do it via FTP or your WHM, so at the very least, use that.

I inadvertently violated my Web Hosts terms of service by having too many files. This plugin has thankfully saved me hundreds of dollars.

I appreciate this more than words can say.

The name of the plugin is incorrect
By , for WP 4.2.4

When I load this plugin I was think what this plugin delete only not unattached media.
But this plugin delete all media in my site. Its was think what all my theme images are not used.... idiot.

Does not know what images are used or not
By , for WP 4.2.3

Deletes all images, even ones that are in fact being used, or are attached.
Use this plugin if you want to lose all your images.

To help warn people this plugin will del your image

If there is one thing I can't stand its plugin that cause damage that can't be restored from if you got no recent backup. Plugins should not have the power to mass delete used images but hey its our own responsibility for what plugin we install and use.

Hopefully one day the author will update this plugin.

Killed my Blog
By , for WP 4.2.2

The plugin scans through subfolders automatically and lists the found content nicely in a table, but its algorithm to determine whether pictures are being used or not is highly unreliable. After deleting all supposedly unused pictures, tons of used pics were gone, including the header picture of my blog... For some reason, some remaining pictures suddenly showed up in totally wrong places. Btw, my blog barely uses plugins, let alone image ones that might throw this one off.

The backup function is awfully implemented, not allowing you to select all files at once for a quick restore. Also, there's no sorting function to help you restore files by size, resolution, date etc. I had to select hundreds of files manually, because from the little information the backup page gives you for each file, I wasn't able to determine which ones were actually being used to remedy this mess.

After I completely restored all files, quite a few embedded pictures were still not working. I'm glad I created a backup beforehand. Thank you to the author for your effort. If this plugin was more reliable then it would be a great one.

This is the worst plugin I have ever used
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin deleted the used images although I selected the option of showing only the un used images

it takes very long time to load

be away of this plugin or get ready to loose all what you did

Very Confusing
By , for WP 4.1.1

I am unable to understand the before after buttons and how to do a backup using this plugin prior to doing a cleanup. Very difficult to understand what should be easy to understand I would think

Works almost perfect
By , for WP 4.1.1

Works as described - except that some settings are cancelled if you log out: Espescially for sizes to ignore this is a bit annoying.
With 6600 images on the site it also is a slow, but probably very safe job.
For the wish list:
- Ability to move images to a new subfolder from which it should be easy to restore them. (This is possible on either Clean up images or Image clean up, but none of them would work with our numer of imiges.)
The settings most often do not go away, so doing the job in several steps is no problem.
After finishing, I have only (not) found about a handfull of images being deleted by accident. On 6000+ photos that is very good.
