    Worked great! I had a NAS with years of files on it. After using a duplicate file finder and other software to automatically catalog and order my music (jaikoz) and photos (auto photo organizer), I had many empty folders. I guess the programs don't delete the folders after cleaning up the data or maybe I didn't choose the right settings. RED found over 1,400 empty directories! Crazy. Once found RED successfully deleted the files. Only wish for the product is that that it produced a log file that you could save that included the list of deleted files. Other than that, this work fantastically well.

    This used to work REALLY GREAT for my Kindle to remove all my deleted books. And then...I don't know what happened. I upgraded to a Paperwhite Kindle and they are leaving the folders behind with something like Lee Child.sdr and in the folders are Lee Child.mbp1 and Lee Child.mbs so that while I have deleted the book - there are empty folders taking up space. In my older Kindle your program would completely strip out all the deleted books. I don't even know if you could solve that or not. But I sure miss that option. It was my Go To program for that. I used to brag about it just for that option.

    Cuando hay mucho que borrar se pone muy lento y hay que desactivar la papelera para que funcione rápido.
