To safely delete a symbol
  1. Position the caret at the name of a symbol that you want to delete.
  2. Choose ReSharper | Refactor | Safe Delete, or press Alt+Delete. The Safe Delete dialog box opens:
    Refactorings__Safe_Delete__dialog_box
  3. Click Next. If no usages of the symbol are found, the symbol is deleted immediately. If ReSharper finds usages, it shows the Conflicts page:
    Refactorings__Safe_Delete__conflicts
  4. Look through the list and try to resolve conflicts.
  5. Click Next to delete the symbol.
To safely remove assembly references
  1. Select assembly references you want to remove in the Solution Explorer window.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the main menu, choose ReSharper | Refactor | Safe Delete.
    • Press Ctrl+Shift+R, then click Safe Delete Assembly Reference.
    • Press Alt+Delete.
  3. If only unused references are selected, then the refactoring is performed immediately without displaying the dialog. Otherwise, the Safe Delete Assembly Reference dialog is displayed.
  4. Click Next to apply the refactoring.
