    A simple question from a simple person.

    I'm cleaning up and updating a rather sprawling website for a non-profit org. The guy before me made a right mess, with htm files, images and assets scattered all over the directory stucture.

    In dreamweaver, when I'm looking at a file, usually .htm, or .jpg or .gif, (tho a couple are .css, .js, and .dwt) how can I find out which other files (if any) on the local site link to or use the file I'm looking at?

    Many thanks,

    ..redTomato..

    I'm pretty sure if you try to delete a file and its being used or linked to from another file it will tell you before you confirm the delete. I'm not entirely sure though..

    Try making a new page/image, put the image on the page then delete the image from inside DW and see what happens...
