    Removing all empty folders...
    Is there a way to batch find and delete all the empty folders on my G4 iBook?

    Is it even a good idea to do this, or are some empty folders required by the system/software etc?

    Thanks

    There isn't really a purpose in doing that as empty folders take up very little space. I just created one and it takes up 68B of space.

    Some empty folders will be re-created the next time you boot up anyway.

    Can understand where the OP is coming from . . . . Sometimes when i have done a BackUp i go through and get rid of all my empties..... Its not so much the *space* it takes up, i have found it clutters the place up.... Mind you some people are anal about keeping there Mac clean (nothing towards the OP here) . . . I suppose there could be a terminal command but that is over my head

    Cheers

    ^ Exactly


    ''Mind you some people are anal about keeping there Mac clean (nothing towards the OP here)''

    ^ I am comfortable with my OCD levels


    Thanks for all your replies.
