The Missing Attachment Scanner performs a background scan on all the attachment files in all spaces (including those in trash).
By identifying the missing attachments, it helps to
prevent (unknown) data loss
facilitate data recovery with earlier discovery
identify any underlying issues
reduce the errors logged in Confluence backend
fix broken links in the Confluence pages
Admins can schedule the scanning during off-peak hours
A rescan can also be triggered when required.
With the report on missing attachments, admins can try to reinstate back the missing files or delete the corresponding database records.
