File Manager - show file references?

Permalink
I think it would be very useful if there was a way in File Manager to select a file and have an option to show me where that file is referred to on pages within the site. I would have thought that should be possible. I'm thinking of this for images in particular, but it could apply to any file type. Is there a way to do this, in File Manager or somewhere else?

I would also greatly appreciate this functionality.
I have a site with about 2000 images spread across 250 or so pages, managed by 5 people. Over the life of the site there must be images that have been uploaded and are not being used. It would be great if I could clean up the File Manager by selecting all of the files not being used in the site, and then deleting them.

Same for me, I would appreciate the feature since the number of files in the file manager is growing and a clean up would be needed.

Either there should be an indication if a file is used and to automatically remove those files
or to have an additional column in the file manager indicating the number of places this file has been used/referenced.

I agree, that feature would be great!
