When I go to to RapidWeaver cpanel and sort resources by file size I discovered that it contains two 4MB Pasted-Graphic TIFF files and one 3MB PDF. I definitely remember posting them but when I discovered they were so large I permanently deleted them from the cpanel.
I then went back to RapidWeaver and marked all Pages & Resources as Changed then Re-Published All Files.
When I check the resources folder again they are still there.
I have reviewed all of my web pages within RapidWeaver and these images don’t show up on any page.
What would cause these artifacts to remain?
If they are not showing up on any served web pages would they cause any performance lags?
I don’t think RW keeps a backwards pointer on resources, so it has no way to know where on what pages it might be used if at all. So it’s telling you that if you delete the resource you need to manually remove or replace them where they are being used.
So if you aren’t using them then you should be good to go. If you deleted the resources from the server, and the Resource tray, when you republish all files they should no longer be on the server.
