How to delete unused images?

(Sat) #1

I do see user upload many versions of same image and they are not used…so how to delete those unused images?

This will also help to reduce backup size.

Images which aren’t attached to posts do get periodically deleted after they age out.

If you’re worried about backup sizes consider using a CDN such as S3 for assets, and only back up the database. A backup with uploads option exists too, enabling it will only back up your data, but I wouldn’t do that unless you know your assets are safely offloaded elsewhere.
