Is there anyway to see if content in Files is not being accessed by anything in the course?

When you import a course you can easily get hundreds of files - I'd like to easily remove those that are not being accessed from within the course.

Hello  @austink8  Welcome to the Canvas Community.  Thank you for posting your question.  There isn't anything built-in to Canvas that I am aware of that would let you remove unneeded files from your course.  However, there is a third-party tool called "TidyUP" that helps you do just what you are asking.  It is a paid product, though.  You can find out more about this product by visiting this website: TidyUP for Canvas File and Page Cleanup - Cidi Labs.  This is all based upon a past conversation here in the Community: Tool to Identify and Delete Unused Files.
