Deleting Unused Media

    Hi,

    I’m using BuddyPress – I have found a plugin that will delete posts before ‘x’ date. Although cant find a way of bulk deleting the media that was associated with that post.

    Is there any way of deleting images from the media library that are not attached to posts?

    Thanks

    Thanks @vapvarun – major issue is the site has 100gb + of media. Thats one big backup to try and restore

    the plugin will not delete automatically, it offers a list but it will be huge to cross-check as per your site total media size.

    You can test the plugin with possible cases and if you are satisfied you can use it, but still backup will be mandatory.

    Hi @Vapvarun,

    Unfortunately, that plugin did not work – it showed nearly every media as unattached that was associated with BuddyPress 🙁

    Surely someone here, does something to purge media and posts to save space after so long?
