Once a week I run a computer cleaner to get rid of temp files etc etc. And once a month I run a defrag program and check disk program....sometimes more often if I have un-installed or deleted lots of things. However, after reading a newsletter from Download.com saying about this little program called "Remove Empty Directories" which finds empty folders etc...I gave it a go.....it found over 500 folders....
Now I did not delete anything as some of these folders were in Windows, Windows\system32
What I'd like to know is what can I safely delete? Are there any rules to deleting empty things?
I have always thought that these files have to be there as some programs..when you run them...write info in them and delete this info when you close it. I'm not sure if I am right or not but maybe somebody can say.
Thanks a lot
