I am trying to fix some missing server side dependencies on an SP2010 farm and am having trouble with missing webparts.
There are two problems specifically.
1) Of the pages I can find (two pages with supposedly 4 instances of the same webpart), when looking at webpart maintenance for the page, there are no error webparts.
Solved This was caused by sharepoint designer. Deleting one page and recreating the other has solved this by removing page history maybe.
2) There are still 4 instances of webparts that are not tracible. I have looked in the database and can see there are tp_PageUrlID values for the webparts, but when I do an inner join on the alldocs table, it is clear that some of these pages dont exist.
I have also cleared the site recycle bins to no avail.
Has anyone had experience with this issue in the past?
Thanks in advance.
I have added recent advances to this question.
