Every now and then the requirement for an application to upload files to the server comes into play. Over time, due to any number of reasons, the directory to which files are uploaded to by said application may tend to fill up with orphan files; that is, files that are associate to and accessed by absolutely nothing. Figuring out which files are orphans and which files can be daunting at first. The fear of the repercussions from removing a file that is not an orphan is nearly paralyzing, especially if said repercussions are legal and could potentially cost an organization both sleep and revenue.
