Not sure if this is the right forum for this....

In NX, I have a lot of buttons created. Before me there was someone who had created many others. Throughout the years the folder we use to store all of the .bmp files has gotten out of hand.

Currently I see around a hundred buttons we still use, but quite a few of those are dropdowns that have several options. My folder for the bmps has over 800. I know for certain we dont use them all.

Is there some way of figuring out which bmps are being connected to by our .TBR files and such? Other than going through each file and looking for each one? lol

If there is no way of doing this in NX itself, would someone know how to do it with windows? Some kind of .dat file that will compare the names of bmps in a folder to names used in tbr files, then give a list of the bmps there are no matches for?

On the side, is there a better way to keep all of this stored that will make it easier to keep clean? Since I have gotten into this, we have always just had a Bitmap folder, a Journal folder, a Macro folder, etc... and of course we have our Startup folder for any TBR, UTD, RTB etc.... files.

My brain is like a sponge. A sopping wet sponge. When I use it, I seem to lose more than I soak in.
