What Are Orphaned Files?
Orphaned files are any pages, images, stylesheets or other content on your server that are no longer used by your active website. These tend to accumulate over time as new versions of your website are placed over the old one. This can lead to a confusing mess of current and out-of-date content on your website. Google and other search engines may still link to this out of date content, causing security risks and potentially damage to your brand.
How Does it Work?
OrFind works by “subtracting” the files linked on your website from the files that are actually stored on your server. Files that are on the server but are not linked through your website are considered orphans. Click here to learn more about OrFind’s orphan analysis technology.
Results are presented in two easy to read file trees; one showing the orphaned files and one showing the accessible files. You can select orphan files for backup and removal directly from within OrFind. If your website is constantly changing, you can schedule a report of your orphans; daily, weekly or monthly.
