Deleting all files and pages no longer seen on website

To simplify and streamline my website, I recently deleted access to two pages from my website, but see that all files related to these two pages are still in all files on my desktop and in my local files. Is it worth my while to go ahead and delete all files from the Dreamweaver website files on my desktop to further streamline my website and to remove bloating? (I think my concern and fear is that I might possibly or accidentally delete something I use on other pages.)

Suzette,

I generally try to keep inactive web pages off the server files (unless there is a reason to keep them available though "unlisted") and include htaccess redirects as necessary. Locally, I archive them in a folder outside the defined one for the site. That way, should I ever need to, I can refer back to previous code.

Many thanks for this help, Chris. I'll pull my inactive files off the server.

A better way to keep track of your files using Dreamweaver, have a look at Learn how to download and use Git with Dreamweaver CC.

Thank you, Ben. I'll take a look at Git and see if I "get" it.
