Works

As for now, works really good. It cleaned more than 400MB - and without issues. Hope, works later also good.

Works like a charm

The best Media Cleaner plugin I have found yet. Works as intended, and really cleaned out a lot of both files and references.
Used it for some time, havn't found any media I deleted that I needed

Don't use if you have non-ASCII characters in file names

The plugin works, except for files with non-ASCII characters in the name (á, ç, ñ, etc...). It will detect them as not being used and delete them if you don't ignore one by one manually.

If you are completely sure all your file name contain only ASCII characters, go ahead, otherwise not recommended.

Does what I says on the box

Found all my orphaned files, which where loose in those unnavigable media directories and successfully removed them. It did catch a few files in my library that were in use by my theme and not in a post, though it wasn't an issue because I reviewed what I was going to delete. Excellent for what it does though hopefully I won't have to use it too many times in the future.

Only plugin that actually works

was looking for something to reduce the size of backups with a load of obsolete files in the upload folder. This did the job perfectly!

Works fine!

This is the only plugin of this sort I found that actually does something I can understand - although its options are well hidden...
It doesn't fully delete selected files but moves them to another folder and you are then free either to restore them if something goes wrong or fully delete them by FTP if they are really useless.
Thanks!

Good idea, but doesn't work properly..

Must to have plugin! When it works. But it does't. Empty trash doesn't work.

My donation is sent to support the development of this plugin.

Works perfectly. Not sure why the negative reviews

Needed to trim down the size of one of my blogs so I could migrate it. Found 2000+ orphaned media items and got rid of them quick. Reduced my total migration size from 40 MB to 15MB. VERY HAPPY!
