Modules of the Week:
File Checker
https://www.drupal.org/project/file_checker
In a perfect Drupal world your server file system and its corresponding entries in Drupal's files table are 100% synchronized. But what if parts of your file system have been corrupted due to some disk failure? Or one of your modules messed up your database and files? Or your deploy script went beserk? Well, then this module will help you to monitor and find out which files are out of sync.
