Just a message to say that RED has been updated on feb. 2011. It is now compatible with Vista & Windows 7 so you won't have to do what is suggested in endolith's message.

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.
