Is there a way to remove and clean up all of the unused and blank file references I have in a file?

I am talking about when I go to File - Define - File References, then when I look there are multiple extra lines with no data, and these represent other instances that should have been deleted. When I select and hit the delete button, nothing happens and these references do not go away.

Maybe if I save a copy as compact?

The best way is to use MetadataMagic [color:red]before you convert.

The problem with doing it manually is that there's no way to know which scripts and table occurrences are using which file references, so you may break things if you just remove them.

If it's too late to go back and use MetadataMagic, then I'd invest in Inspector so you can analyze your solution before you start weed-whacking.
