Check for Unlinked Media

Post by ColinMc » 14 Jan 2020 14:45

The help for this states
Checks all the media files in the media folder
As I do not keep my media in the media folder, does this mean that the plugin does not work for me? I get a report of 0 unlinked records, and yet I know there are some unlinked ones.

The sister Plugin Check for Possible Duplicates does work for me, but the help here refers to media records in the project, rather than the media folder.

Yes, it only works for files in the Media folder, otherwise it would report all the files on your PC as unlinked, apart from the few that are linked.

Thanks - didn't think through the likely outcome if it did.
