How do you manage Content Orphaned by Location?

Question asked by jb31812 on Jun 27, 2018

After our latest course purge of a semester, our Content Orphaned by Location exceeded 10,000 folders, and since we have to use 360 View for each and every file with a green check mark (Article No.: 000041407) to verify if it is actually linked to an existing course, it is not humanly possible to manage orphaned content at this point. When I asked Blackboard Support for the total file size of our orphaned content, I was flabbergasted to hear it was taking up a third of our total environment.

 

All that being said, has anyone tried/been successful with leveraging APIs to manage orphaned content? If not, how do you manage it?
