Delete Checked Empty Folder to Recycle Bin

After scanning the local drives, you can see how many empty folders occupy your hard disk. If those empty folders are system folders, you needn't remove them at all. Our recommendation is not to remove. If the empty folders were created by yourself for storing files and then you actually haven't put any files in them, then you'd better remove them. Just mark the box before the empty folders you want to delete, click "Delete Checked Folders" to remove the empty folders from your disk.
