We have lots of data in our system which comprises of files and folders. A folder hierarchy can go upto many levels thereby making difficult for us to scan them for data. We also tend of have lot of empty folders in our machines, although unwillingly but we do have it.

Say for instance, you have moved some data or a file from a folder to a new location but it can happen that you forget to delete the parent folder thereby creating an empty folder adding to the system clutter. Although empty folder does not affect us but it degrades the system performance by creating disk fragmentation and adding the file clutter.

Therefore we advise you to scan your system for empty folders and delete them but if you plan to do this process manually then you are going to end up wasting lot of precious time of yours. Here is a simple tool called Fast Empty Folder Finder (FEFF) that is specifically designed for this purpose of scanning the system for empty folders up to any level of hierarchy and presenting you with a choice to delete them in one go.

FEFF is very simple to use too, you just need to download this executable file and run it to get the interface. Now you can either drag and drop the folder or specify a location to search for the empty folders. After scanning your system, it will present a list of all the empty folders before you, clicking which you can have a preview and selecting which you can either delete them temporarily or permanently.

Moreover you can also export this list as .csv or as .feff and also import the same to have a track of the folders that you have in your computer. You can stop the scan in between and also start a new scan with new set of filters to search for the empty folders.

The tool is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. You can download it from the link below.
