How to find missing web part?

To find missing web parts in SharePoint we have many ways. Here I am going to show you 2 ways.
With use of STSADM command :               stsadm.exe -o enumallwebs -includewebparts > c:\bkup\aa.txt
             This command will send the output in “C:\bkup\aa.txt:” file & where you can find “Status="Missing Type”. Basically this file will contain data in xml format & you will get information about the all sites you have with url & id.

There are two base classes that a WebPart which is going to be consumed by SharePoint can inherit from, either the SharePoint WebPart Base class or the ASP.NET 2.0 WebPart base class. When inheriting from the SharePoint WebPart Base class your derived WebPart class will inherit from Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPart. When inheriting from the ASP.NET 2.0 WebPart base class your derived WebPart class will inherit from System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPart.
