[Micronet] a file management tool

Lucy Greco
Hello:
 We are in the process of moving our web site to a new computer. I have all
the files that were on our old web server. however I have all!!!!! The
files. I can see files as old as 2000 in this folder. I thought I could sort
the files by date to get rid of the old files but no go. All the files are
dated 2009. So that won't work. Does anyone know of a tool I could use to
find out which files are being linked and witch files can be sent off to
live on an archive cd in Lucy Greco

If the old web site is still active, a link checker like Xenu, could get
you the list of active pages on the site. Do watch the request timing if
you do this, or your web server may feel the strain!

It _may_ be possible to get just the links with wget or cURL. I have not
done anything like it in a while. The list will probably have to be
sorted and the duplicates removed. The only trouble with wget and cURL
is sorting out the right flags and magic incantations. You do not want
to drift off your site into someone else's.

If you just have a set of copied files, and the dates are no help, a
link checker may have trouble because the URLs will not match the file
system. In that case you may have to move all the files to the new
server, get the site up, and then do the link check to find the live pages.

Then you make a plan to never leave future dead files in the live site
tree 8-)

Or maybe there is another option?
