Feature Request: Which Files are not used

I have a bunch of PDFs and Word docs that are linked to (mostly) from one page.

Occasionally a file and its link is pulled down (no longer available) from the site, and it would be really helpful if I could view a report that said

File PDFs/nameoffile.pdf is not linked to in any CityDesk article

so that I could loop through the files and delete those (and then compact the database). That's all I need. I can understand that to do this for articles themselves is tricky because you've got to consider that article might be linked via a loop, but for  PDFs and docs and other inserted files....

Why not search on the magic name & pdf file name (the two possible ways of linking to it) using CityDesk's search?

Good idea martktaw.com - I didn't think about the magicnames, and that at least lets me search for a known article that I suspect might be out of date and no longer linked.
