We have large media library with more than 300000 images.
We decide to delete all images < 2017 year manually using “FTP”, from WP upload folder.
But after that in WP Admin > Media > Library, they still “exist” as screenshot – broken media links in library
We tried with couple of plugins , but there isn’t any with option to bulk delete images by month or year.
Is there any way to speed up the process, instead manually deleting it using “filter by year” and “Pagination Number of items per page” show: 999 , where we always get “request timeout”.
