I have some files in the File module that have no references with is correctly shown in the list:

When I look at the detail view of the file, I see a reference nevertheless - the reference from the sys_file_metadata record to this file:

Now when I'm trying to delete this file, which is never used in content, I still get the warning that there is one reference:

I assume that the problem is that the JavaScript dialog is based on the total number of references without considering that every file has a sys_file_metadata record.

  • Status changed from New to Needs Feedback

sys_file_metadata relations are currently hardcoded excluded. Could you maybe update the refindex and check again.

The problem seems fixed in 7.6.4 as far as I can see; moreover there has been no feedback within the last 90 days => so, I am closing this issue for now.
