In my computer, a large number of software and applications exist in different folders. Most of the time when my Antivirus program is updated, it deletes all the executable files that contain any virus threat. Thus due to deletion of a large number of executable files, there are lots of empty folders left on my computer. Normally, nobody stores empty folders on their computer but sometimes the data in a folder is deleted due to some or the other reason (mostly because of virus issues) and the folder becomes empty. Gradually, our computer accumulates scores of empty folders which can be annoying when we reach them hoping to find a file, document or any other kind of data and discovering that they are empty. Empty folders are not harmful for the computer but it is better to remove them to keep the computer hard drive clean.
Searching and deleting empty folders from the computer is a bigger issue than having empty folders in the computer. Windows does not offer any option to clean out all the empty folders at once, so you need the help of a third party software called Fast Empty Folder Finder which can quickly find empty folders, show you a preview of their contents (for safety), and give you the option to delete those folders. Fast Empty Folder Finder downloadable file is very small in size and it works in portable mode utilizing very less system resources.
To use this application, first of all you need to choose the location. You can choose any folder or system drive to scan for empty folders. Once you have selected the location, click on the Scan Now button and Fast Empty Folder Finder will start searching instantly. You can stop and change the program setting any time to get the best results. Once Fast Empty Folder Finder scans all folders in the selected location, it will display the results and you can choose what to do with the empty folders from two options – delete them in Recycle Bin or delete them permanently. You can delete the empty folders one by one or choose them together and delete to save your time. Along with all these above features, you can export and import the empty folders list to use in future or any other document work.
Fast Empty Folder Finder works on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and Windows 8 as well in both 32bit and 64bit versions.
