How do I find information about lost attachments?

You may like to use the findattachments.jsp which should detect missing attachments.

For Confluence 3.x, please download the corresponding script attached to Resolve Missing Attachments in Confluence

Simply copy it to confluence/admin/findattachments.jsp and access it at <confluence_base_url>/admin/findattachments.jsp

Below is an example of the result generated by http://<confluence_base_url>/admin/findattachments.jsp

Beginning search...
Missing attachment: <path>/attachments/3477/279/1, filename: Final-OdysseyCodingConventions.doc, filetype: Word Document

As you can see in the above example, the script will report:

Location of the attachment missing
Full Name of the attachment
File type recognised :
  • PDF Document
  • Image
  • XML File
  • HTML Document
  • Text File
  • Word Document
  • Excel Spreadsheet
  • PowerPoint Presentation
  • Java Source File
  • Zip Archive
