Remove Empty Directories Review

Fernando Ortega
Finds empty directories on a filesystem and offers to delete them
A review of Remove Empty Directories by Fernando Ortega

Remove Empty Directories (also called RED) is a pretty useful application for cleaning up your hard drive by removing empty directories. It can also remove directories that only contain useless files like 'Thumbs.DB'.

The main interface of Remove Empty Directories includes a tree listing of the directory you have selected to scan. The items there include icons indicating the status of the directory and whether it's a root directory, empty, contains 'trash', hidden, locked, protected or already deleted. Further on, color codes indicate what will happen when you select "Delete folders".

In the settings section of Remove Empty Directories, you are given the option to ignore certain types of files such as temporary files, Thumbs.db or desktop.ini. This can be very usual for stale directories that were never properly deleted in the past. The program can also help you out by automatically ignoring certain system directories like Recycling Bin, etc.

After Remove Empty Directories has been installed, you can have it integrate itself into the Windows Shell making it a quick and efficient way to use the application while browsing your hard drive. To add shell integration, just go to the program settings menu and select "Integrate" under "Explorer Integration".

Overall, Remove Empty Directories is a small and fast tool which does exactly what its title implies. It is efficient and also offers safeguards against deleting important and non-empty folders.

Remove Empty Directories features and highlights:
  • Shows empty directories before deleting them

  • Allows white and black listing of directories by using filter lists
  • Can detect directories with empty files as empty
