Empty Directories

Empty directories can clutter a file system and make it difficult for the average user to find information quickly and efficiently. For the more advanced user, filtering out empty directories is a trivial regular expression, but empty directories can be bothersome to the average desktop user. FSlint can find and remove these pesky empty directories.

Graphical Interface


FSlint will find any empty directory within the 'Search path.'
