Empty Folders?

  lulubelle 19:16 31 Jul 2006

Hi all,
I've just used a feature in Ashampoo Uninstaller Suite, where you can find empty folders and then delete them. The program says that I have 533 empty folders!!!!. Does anyone know if it IS safe to delete these? It certainly seems like an awful lot.
Many Thanks

Unless there is a reason, just leave them. Most do not matter and can be safely deleted, but the odd one does, and if you shift it, your system may be unhappy as a result.

They don't take up space, and I know it may niggle, but just leave them

Thanks 961,
You've just confirmed my own feelings on this.
Why do these programs offer functions like this? Some of the things that you can do with them could be downright dangerous, especially in the hands of novices. Anyway thanks again for your quick reply.
