Is there any plugin/tool to identify and remove unreferenced media from Production blob

Hi,

We are using Episerver CMS v11.4 hosted in Epi cloud. I wanted to check if we have any tool/plugin which can find unreferened images from blob storage in PRODUCTION environment and clean those. We are growing with lot of junk files in Asset pane. Something like https://world.episerver.com/blogs/Per-Nergard/Dates/2017/9/plugin-for-deleting-unreferenced-media/

I am not sure how performance wise it will affect the site as it will read values from database too, to check reference. I dont want to use shceduled job as I dont want to delete those directly. https://world.episerver.com/forum/developer-forum/CMS/Thread-Container/2017/6/quotremove-abandoned-blobsquot-scheduled-job-doesn39t-remove-all-abandoned-blobs/

The links I mentioned are moreover for lower environments and not Production. How much risk it is to have such tool implemented in Production?

If anyone has come across this scenario good to have views on this.

Hello Sanket

The approach discussed here could be used: https://www.markeverard.com/2015/03/16/helping-episerver-editors-find-unused-content/

It uses Powerslice and Search and Navigation (previously known as Find).
