portable Portable

find and remove empty folders RED (Remove Empty Directories) enables you to find and remove empty folders, often left behind from previous software installations. You can choose to scan only a specific folder hierarchy (e.g. Program Files) or search an entire drive. You can also exclude system folders as well as custom directory names and also specify whether the program should consider folders that only contain zero-byte files (0kb) as empty or not. Advanced users can even set custom name patterns to identify files that should be considered "junk", which enables you to locate folders that, although not empty, only contain useless file.Before deleting anything, RED will present you with comprehensive preview that shows you a list of all folders that match your criteria. You can then choose to proceed with the cleanup, pick folders to be excluded or manually delete individual directories. Copyright

Fast and efficient! 5 stars by busybusy Apr 18, 2017 (Read all my 257 reviews)
Jonas did a great job creating a easy to used interface. I could not believe how nice it is. It tells you all you need to know in a glance. The settings tab filled with intelligently designed but allows customization of the filters. This utility may be from 2011 but it still works great in 2017. show Review details
Nice and fast 5 stars by gimpguy Jul 25, 2011 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
This scans for empty directories very quickly and I have a lot of information to sift through. I gave it a 5 for what it's made for, it does extremely well. I do caution deleting everything by default, there are a lot of directories that may be empty but will need to be written to at a later time. I have a lot of applications that require these directories to write to and would be a mess if I deleted them. Like Disk Explorer for example, It has an empty PDF directory but needed when I safe my data base as such and would have been deleted otherwise. It may not be a needed system file but if your applications require many directories for other uses, you could find yourself replacing them. So while this is a very simple application, I will say again, read through the settings, use caution. show Review details
Great job 5 stars by freeclick Jul 21, 2011 (Read all my 32 reviews)
I have never ran an app that cleaned empty directories or if so I can't recall. In any case found almost 500 empty directories on my little old 80GB drive and no problems after deleting. I think everything is safe as long as the system files are not included in your search and that is the default setting as you'll notice on the settings tab. Great Job, no problem after deleting suggested files. show Review details
