Freewares for deleting empty folder

How many times has something as simple as deleting an empty folder wasted your time? Windows file management has progressed much since the old days of MS-DOS, but it’s still far from perfect. Many times when you manage your computer hard disk drives or move files and folders, you end up having empty folders. This situation also happens when you uninstall programs. Although these empty folders do not take up any space, it still is annoying if you are searching for some file. In this post I decide to give some alternatives to make your task easy.

There are two Freeware tools (which i like most) for deleting empty folders

1. RED (Remove Empty Directory)
Type: Freeware & open source
About: RED searches and deletes empty directories recursively below a given start folder and shows the result in a well arranged tree. Further you can create some custom rules for keeping and deleting folders. Empty files in directories can also be ignored. Just try RED to see the other features - no registry keys or system files will be touched.
