In the forums a few weeks ago someone asked about whether or not empty folders that had been left by Enterprise Vault CAB process could be removed.

The answer is that they can ..

And I wrote this tool (source code and all is freely available) which should do the job.

It's a command line tool and uses .Net 3.5.  You need to specify ..

- The path to the folder you want to scan

- Optionally specify -r (for report mode)

- If you have specified -r (for report mode) then this parameter should be the file name for a report file to be generated

Before running the tool in 'delete' mode ensure you have a good backup, and of course review the source code yourself to make sure you're happy with what it's doing, how it's working and so on.
