How To Find & Remove Empty Folders
FolderSizes provides an extremely powerful built-in search facility that can isolate specific file and folder instances based upon a broad range of criteria. FolderSizes search can easily be used to find and remove empty folders.
Steps to accomplish:
|1.||Click the Search button in the application ribbon bar. The FolderSizes Search window will appear.|
|2.||Add one or more paths to the Search Paths tab by using the New Path button.|
|3.||Click the Search Rules tab, and click the New Rule Button. Select New Folder Rule from the pop-up menu. The Rule Editor window will appear.|
|4.||Click the Size tab in the Rule Editor window, and select the Specify Size radio button [screen].|
|5.||Specify a folder size "Equal to" 0 KB.|
|6.||Click OK to save the rule and click the Start toolbar button to begin the empty directory search.|
Once you've got a listing of the zero-length file system objects, you can select the ones you don't need, right click, and choose Delete Selected Item(s).
Important: Never assume that a directory is safe to delete simply because it is empty. Make sure you understand the potential impact before modifying any part of your computer or network file system(s).
