Question / Problem

Does SpaceObServer allow you to search for empty directories?

Answer / Solution

No. Empty directories do not occupy disk space on NTFS volumes, so searching for empty directories costs time, but does not free up disk space. Furthermore, there are directories in which programs place (temporary) files only while they run. Deleting these directories can cause error messages or malfunctions when starting those programs the next time.
