There are so many reasons due to which we end up having several empty folders on our Windows systems. Sometimes you create a folder for something specific and forget to copy the files in it, at times you uninstall a program from your system, and the program is uninstalled but leaves behind an empty folder, and so on. Keeping empty folders on your system probably won’t harm you in any way, but this can be irritating at times, and all you wan is batch delete those empty folders. Viewing a drive or folder which has loads of folders in it and several of these folders are empty. Such a scenario doesn’t only make it look messy but also makes it tough to manage.
