Identifying and deleting unused files

Identifying and deleting unused files

You can identify and delete files that are no longer used by other files in your site.

To identify and delete unused files:

  1. Select Site > Check Links Sitewide.

    Dreamweaver checks all the links in your site and displays the broken ones in the Results panel.

  2. Select Orphaned Files from the pop-up menu on the Link Checker panel.

    Dreamweaver displays all the files with no incoming links. This means that no files in your site link to these files.

  3. Select the files you want to delete and press Delete (Windows) or Command+Delete (Macintosh).
