Remove Empty Directories (RED)

RED searches, displays and deletes empty directories recursively below a given start folder. Furthermore it allows you to create custom rules for keeping and deleting folders (e.g. treat directories with empty files as empty).

Features

  • Simple user interface
  • Shows empty directories before deleting them
  • Supports multiple delete modes (including Delete to recycle bin)
  • Allows white and black listing of directories by using filter lists
  • Can detect directories with empty files as empty

System requirements

  • Windows XP, Vista or 7 and RED might also work with Windows 8 and Linux (by using Mono)
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 or later (the installer should check that)

Development

RED is developed by Jonas John (@hxseven).
