Default Cleaning up Dats; deleting unused dds & bmp images

As you could guess from the title of the post, I have a question about deleting unused dds and bmp files from dats. Whenever I delete an unused file's blue and yellow boxes from the "tree" in VRS, and then save them. I notice the same files I thought I removed are back when I open up the dat in change tex to reselect the desired dds to remove the altered green color hue thing~etc. So I was wondering is there supposed to be another way to delete dds & bmp files tht you are no longer using in a dat? As you can image, my dat's sizes are steadily increasing from this; as well, as its making the dats looked cluttered in change tex.

One of the "features" of the newer version of VRS is that it doesn't delete textures even if they are unused. There are two ways around this...
Use the older version of VRS, or delete the texture in a hex editor. Either way, you'll need to use a hex editor since the older version of VRS has an issue with not saving different datasizes for different textures.

I think I have a copy of hex editor on one of my external HDs, so I'll definitely try that. Thanks for the info Kickern.

Sweep the floor constantly. Do dry cleaning by sweeping the floor with a broom once every two days. Although the laminate is a fairly scratch-resistant surface, the constant sweeping of sand, dust, hair and other things will prevent scratches and other deformations. Instead of a mop https://cleanhomeguide.com/best-mop-...minate-floors/ , you can also use a vacuum cleaner with a soft nozzle. Do not use mops and bristles. A hard pile can scratch the laminate.
