Search for Pointers to PDBs that do not exist


Without a PDB, s SymbolStore reference is useless. The DLLs and EXEs are also useless. The Version relates them all together.
Find missing PDBs and select its transaction ID and all Transactions with the same Version for deletion.

So this would basically be a "scrub" command that would remove transactions that had missing PDBs? Seems reasonable. It would only apply where all PDBs were missing out of a transaction though, right? You wouldn't want to remove a transaction that was only missing some of the data (at least you wouldn't want to automatically "scrub" it, it could still be manually removed.)

Correct that all PDBs would need to be missing in order to remove the whole transaction.

But, its also important to remove the transactions that contain the matching DLLs and EXEs. For us that's easy to determine the transactions as the Version links all the transactions that contain the matching PDBs, DLLs and EXEs.

The priority of this is low.
