"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you open your Results panel (Window > Results, or F7), and select Orphaned Files from the Show list, it will list all the files on the site that have no links to them. You can choose to find orphaned files for the entire site, or to check within selected files or folders by clicking on that green options arrow at the top left of the Results panel. You can also use this panel to check for broken links within the site, and for all external links (broken or not). If you are checking for broken links, you can repair any links right within this panel by clicking within the right column next to the link and selecting, or typing in the correct file or URL.

You can also generate a site map if you expand your Files panel (click on that Expand/Collapse button on the Files panel top toolbar). In the expanded mode, you can select the Site Map button (to the left of the Get button) to generate a site map. If you haven't already done so, you must indicate which file is your home page first, so it knows how to draw the site map. You can right click on the file that you want to be your home page, and select Set As Home Page. The site map will then generate from this point down.

If you want to view the site map from a different point down, right click on any file in the site map and choose View As Root. This will redraw the map from that file down. You'll see that there is a breadcrumb trail at the top of the site map allowing you to return to the map drawn with your original page as the home page again.

The site map can be saved and printed.

I hope this is what you were looking for.
