Remove Empty Directories - a freeware tool to batch delete empty folders

One might think that searching and deleting empty directories is a trivial thing, but once you have hundreds of them it get’s really exhausting. That’s the reason I made RED. It’s a small and simple tool that searches and deletes empty directories recursively below a given start folder. And before deleting anything it let’s you check all empty directories it found.


Shows empty directories before deleting them
Supports multiple delete modes (including Delete to recycle bin) (Version 2.2)
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)
