DOS batch script to cleanup empty folders.

Hi,

I need to put a DOS batch script on a WIN7 workstation's startup folder to cleanup the empty directories in the C drive.

Can someone help?

Thanks.

There is this freeware tool http://www.jonasjohn.de/red.htm

or there is this bat one liner. You can pass in an argument for a pattern / root or it will use the current directory

for /f "delims=" %%d in ('dir /s /b /ad ^| sort /r') do rd "%%d"

Open in new window


Personally I would use the tool.
