Search for empty folders & sub folders & delete them all?

#1 Post by Phototaker » 25.05.2016, 07:25

I have just come across an old HDD that has hundreds of empty files on it. Many of these folders also have sub folders as well that are also empty. Is there some way that I can use FreewCommander XE to search out all of these empty folders & then have them deleted?

Thanks in advance

Alt+F7 (search file/folders). I think, using "<1;:D" in filename should work. But it doesn't... maybe I'm wrong on this...

Just use flat view for folders (CTRL+SHIFT+B), and see which folders have size 0 ( crtl+f2 then alt+f9 :) ).

For searching really empty folders you should add column "Items" to the profile. All folders with the value 0 in the "Items" column are empty (no files, no folders). Size 0 for folder in the flat view means only the folder has no files with size > 0.
