Deleting unused files

Postby DoTheWriteThing on Thu Jun 14, 2018 6:15 am

Hi all,
I've generated a report showing hundreds of unused images and topics, but I can't see any quick way to delete them, any ideas?

If you look at the list through the Analysis tab More Reports > Unused Items (Flare 2018) you can select as many items as you like and press the big red X. (Before 2018 you had to do it from Analyzer.)
If I were you I'd be very wary about doing this though - my projects always have some 'unused' items which are there for a reason, albeit not in a target, and do have value to me!

Before deleting en masse pull a backup of the project. I am sure you did that anyway, but worth a reminder.

Hey there, I ran the report in the now-included Analyzer tab, it's the Unused Items report. All it brings up is topics, which I don't want to delete. I could certainly select the topics and delete them.

What I'd like to do is have this kind of report for unused images only.

Then I can easily delete images in bunches, after I double check them. Right now, I'm having to slog through 326 unused images and deleting them one by one in the Images folder. I'm sure there is an easier way to do this.

Thank you in advance.
