I've moved a couple of workstations up to Windows 8 Pro/64bit and it is still a champ for me.

Use RED2 on all my PC's (ranging from XP Pro/SP3 to Win7 Ultimate) and only had 1 problem, ever. That was when I had a directory with really unusual attributes. When I corrected the attributes, worked like a champ.

Doesn't work. I mean the software starts, but it doesn't find any of the empty folders I was hoping it would.

RED is the best tool I've found for this, since it handles directories with nothing but junk in them (Thumbs.db, .DS_Store), lets you permanently protect directories from deletion, shows a nice tree view, etc.

I got it working in Windows 7 using the compatibility troubleshooter thing, but it doesn't seem fully compatible. It often crashes, due to an inability to read certain filenames.
