Media Cleaner cleans your Media Library from the media entries (and files) which aren’t used in your website, as well as broken entries. An internal trash allows you to make sure everything works properly before deleting the media entries (and files) permanently. It uses a smart analysis powered by many implementations for specific plugins and themes.
Before using this plugin, make sure you have a proper backup of your install. This step is not optional; it is required. You cannot trust any tools modifying or deleting your files.
Media Cleaner PRO detects unused or useless files in your WordPress. It cleans your Media Library and your Filesystem. To achieve this, it analyzes your WordPress install in order to find out which files are actually in use. It is the only tool that is able to perform all those tasks and we are working hard to keep it always up to date.
The Pro version adds Filesystem Analysis, extra support for complex plugins, Live Site option and WP-CLI support.
With the Filesystem Analysis, Media Cleaner Pro scans your physical /uploads directory, and match it against the Media Library. It also has extra support for complex plugins, such as:
- ACF (+ ACF Widgets)
- Divi Builder
- Fusion Builder (Avada)
- WPBakery Page Builder
- Visual Composer
- Beaver Builder
- Brizy Builder
- Oxygen Builder
- Slider Revolution
- Avia Framework
- And more (Theme X, ZipList Recipe, WP Residence, WCFM MarketPlace, UberMenu…)
The Live Site option will analyze the online version of your website, which might enhance the accuracy of the Cleaner in edge-cases.
