Remove Empty Directories (RED) Reviews

about Remove Empty Directories (RED) · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

A must-have! I wouldn't ask for any change or improvement - it's perfect. Very quick, simple, yet offers a lot of configuration options for people who needs customized search. I used it with a variety of directory names, including non-latin alphabets and there were no problems. There are internal safeguards to ensure that nothing will go wrong. I find hard to believe reviews saying it doesn't work. Apparently there are some files inside (hidden/system files?) or maybe filesystem needs checking. I used for years on different PCs, OSes with variety of options and it always worked.

Super simple and does what it says

Simply removes empty folders just as the name suggests. Perfect when you are cleaning up duplicated files with some other app. Like Small AllDup iconAllDup .

AllDup is a duplicate FILES finder, not an empty folders finder

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.

2011 is now 9 years ago.
Have you retried it since then ?

Finds empty directories, but only 0kb ones.
Windows has empty directories of several kb due to "protected operating system files"
Want to delete folders in my music dir, from when I migrated from itunes

It would be weird if the tool named remove EMPTY directories would remove directories that aren't empty, wouldn't it?
