          Hi Tilman

          Thanks for your reply.

          The Xenu manual/instructions that I was referring to is at:-

          http://members.chello.nl/f.visser3/xenu/

          which I found by following the link in the Xenu Help.

           

          I have just performed a scan on my total site, on my Hard Drive, with all the options selected, and level 999, then selected no report, and in the over 2000 lines of results there is not a single entry in the status column, or anywhere else, of the word “Orphan” or any indication that any of my many orphan .jpg files are being found.

          Am I missing something?

           

          Thanks

          Brian Tozer

            I decided to release the current beta as version 1.2h:
            http://home.snafu.de/tilman/XENU.ZIP

            Major improvements:
            - Tip of the day
            Minor improvements:
            - ALT part of <IMG > used for the title column
            - [Options] FailSimilarHosts=0 (current behaviour and default is 1)
            - more statistics for managers (min size with link, max size with link,
            avg size)
            - "In Links" and "Out Links" in headings for better readability when
            small
            - correct error message for empty ftp orphan directories
            - error message for empty local orphan directories
            - error message for non existing local orphan directories
            - orphan list sorted
            - (Test / by request only) IGNOREFRONTPAGEORPHANS
            - ftp host field allows port number, ftphostname:port
            - ftp dialog fields stored in .INI file
            - ftp default page (e.g. index.html, home.html, default.asp, etc)
            - ftp dialog does not appear when Xenu is launched with "-url", but is
            still available in "corporate" version
            - ReportBroken2 more efficient
            - 8.6.2005 Switched to InnoSetup 5
            - slight change in .TAB format: Status-Code and Status-Text instead of
            Status only
            - prevent empty input in NEW dialog
            - Ignore "error" HTTP_STATUS_ACCEPTED (for user with VMware, host Fedora
            Core 9 who has NAT problems)
            - changed handling of "%XX" with file:// orphan files
            - AfxMyParseURL removes "%XX" with file:// URLs
            - include/exclude wildcard test thanks to
            http://www.codeproject.com/string/wildcmp.asp
            - better text for ftp orphan dialog
            - 18.3.2006: currently selected URL is first next new thread
            - 19.3.2006: ftp/gopher segment only when such URLs exist
            - 19.3.2006: put include/exclude settings into report
            - 1.4.2006: link to Google Sitemaps in report
            Bug fixes:
            - in file://///UNC-Host/Share, leading "//" is not an error
            - &#xnnn; now recognised (in addition to &#nnn;)
            - vNormalizeURL() when reading URL List
            - need space or semicolon before a "name", "href", etc
            - process % when checking an ftp URL on an ftp server

                I have just tried the new version 1.2h on a site I have archived on my Hard Drive.

                Xenu finds over 2000 URLs but there is not a single orphan entry in the Status column.

                Like the previous version, when I reply YES to the request for a report, nothing is generated.

                In the options dialoge box I have selected 30 threads, 999 levels, and only the Orphan files box ticked.

                I know that there are many orphans, but none are found.

                  On both version 1.2g and 1.2h no report is displayed, either when I answer YES to the request immediately at the conclusion of scan, or by pressing "R".

                  In both cases I see the erupting volcano graphic for a couple of seconds, but there is no change to the display.

                  I have the "Orphan files" box ticked in the "Sleuthing Options" dialogue box.

                  However, by examining the Xenu.ini file I found that the report was actually created, what it was named, and that it was saved in the system Local Settings/Temp folder, but was not displayed.

                  I could copy it from there and save it elsewhere for viewing.

                  I hope that this info is usefull.

                      No, not for local checks

                              launch the report.

                              That won't help you - it depends of your ISP. If you access your site
                              with ftp, you would know the settings. (The current dialogbox is also
                              somewhat improved.) But you don't need it for LOCAL checks.

                                  Good Morning.
                                  I am experiencing some seious problems with my website www.vacuumcleanershop.com - mainly a drop in traffic which seems to coincide with the large number of files/pages the Googles' Webmaster Tools sees as "Not Selected" when it crawls my website. The website contains approximately 2500 pages, yet Google tells me there are close to 11,000 pages that are "not selected" in the index.
                                  Xenu did find some problems that were related to a social networking script I had installed. I removed that script and those problems went away. However, Xenu is also telling me that I have approximately 7300 orphan files. Again, this is from a site with only 2500 pages. Most of the so called Orphan Files are what look to be legitimate url's in the format: http://www.domainname/directory/URLname.htm so I don't see how they could be orphans.
                                  I got similar results using another program called InSpyder to check for orphan files and it ran for 3 hours until I finally gave up. Some of these files were also legitimate looking but many were malformed with six or more subdirectories before the html page.

                                  Thank you in advance for any help,
                                  Paul

                                  Hi, The best is that you send me ( tilman at snafu dot de ) a .XEN file, and a report of what you did. Then mention one or two examples of an orphan file,

                                    as the report tells you - "Links that aren't spidered (e.g. webforms and
                                    dynamically generated links) will appear as orphans in this list."
