I just wanted to add a short post announcing a little plugin I wrote in my spare time recently which is called WPDBSpringClean.
Many plugins do not clean up their database tables after you uninstall them.
What happens most of the time is that the plugin files and folder is deleted but not the corresponding plugin database tables.
This where my plugin comes to the rescue. The WPDBSpringClean plugin identifies unused, WordPress DB tables which have been left over from old plugins you have uninstalled on your site and it then gives you the option of deleting these tables.
So why not download it now for FREE and let me know what you think.

Hi, I installed this plugin on WP3.4 Multisite and activated it in the rootblog. I was hoping, it would recognise the leftover tables in my whole multisite installation. Instead, it suggested to delete all tables, who actually belong to the subblogs and are active.
My suggestion: After deleting a subblog, many tables are left over. If this plugin would check their ID’s against the table “My Sites”, it could locate the left over tables and suggest them for deletion.

Thanks for your comment and suggestions.
Currently this plugin is not supported for multisite installations but there are plans to add this capability.
