Do you have a WordPress site and want to trim down on the bulk of your site files but don't want to have to look through your uploads folder with a fine-toothed comb? Give WP Media Cleaner a try.

It searches through your uploads folder, finds files that aren't used. You can review and put the images in the trash (a temporary spot the plugin creates so you can test before actually deleting the files from the server.)

This plugin, paired with Broken Link Checker is absolute gold for cleaning things up.
