How to Delete Empty Folders on Android

Manually finding and deleting empty folders in your Android device is a time-consuming task.

With the help of a third-party app, you can do this task quickly and easily. Moreover, here we’ll see the one which may help you with this:

Install and open “Empty Folder Cleaner – Delete Empty Folders” app.

Tap on the “Accept and Continue” button if you’re okay with the app’s TOS, Privacy Policy and Permission Disclosure.

Now, you should be on the main screen.

Tap the icon at the center, and it’ll ask you the “Storage” permission. Once you provide permission, the app will begin finding and removing empty folders.

That’s it. All done.

Here’s an important thing to note: By default, the app will not scan Android created folders, hidden folders, and SD card folders.

If you want the app to scan those, then follow the below steps:

Hit the “Gear” icon at the top.

Enable Scan Android Created Folders, Scan Hidden Folders, and Scan SD Card Folders options.

Also, note that while enabling the “Scan SD Card Folders” option, you’ll be asked to choose the root of the SD card for granting write access.

Remember that the app will not remove empty folders from /LOST.DIR and /DCIM folders.
