Search for parents

Is there any way in vault to search for files with a specific number of parents.

Over time of checking assemblies in many parts & bolted connections have been created. A number of these have become obsolete due to design changes, however these are forgotten about in the haste of reaching deadlines.

I would like to be able to search for parts/assemblies that do not have any parents (or even a way of showing file parents in a list rather than clicking on individual files).

This will enable me to delete some of these and keep the vault from getting over crowded with obsolete files.

Thanks for posting this question. As far as I know there is no way to search for this value. Vault does track relationship data, but I don't believe there is a way to search on whether or not a file has one.
