How to Remove Unused Drupal Modules

Over the last few years we've had a wide variety of questions about removing Drupal modules, including these:

  • Do I need to remove modules via the admin or the file system?
  • Do uninstalled modules leave database entries behind?
  • Can I just disable a module, rather than completely uninstall it?
  • Should I uninstall Drupal core modules when I see that option?

Robert answers all those questions and more in this video from our Drupal Security class.
