Dead File Checking program

Does anyone know of a program that allows you to check the server where your site is located, and looks for files that are dead?  I'm not saying dead links in html files, but rather pages and images themselves that are no longer connected to anything.  Some of our sites are constantly being updated, and old files that are no longer in use are taking up space on the server.  The sites are too big to ever hope to go through by hand and check and see if every image and every file is being used.

Thanks!

Some of the commercial software from WWW.InContext.COM
can produce a "site-map", and a list of "broken" links
and "dead" pages.

> Version 2, although the latest version, is about two years old and no new releases are planned. It's dying.

Maybe not.  InContext was a publicly-traded company (TSE)
and then it merged with Everyware Development (ASE)
and recently, the InContext assets were sold by Everyware
to Perversive (NASDAQ?).  Perhaps, the "new" owners have
a good reason for buying the technology ?!?!

Having a "bad-spelling" day: 'Pervasive' is correct.
