Tool for finding all empty folders in dropbox

Tool for finding all empty folders in dropbox

Is there a tool I can use to collectively locate ALL empty folders with in DropBox. I know you can arrange folders from smallest to largest, but this doesnt help when we have many folders within folders within folders.

Hi there @Alexandra_neill, thanks for reaching out to us here!

We don't currently have a feature to locate empty folders within Dropbox, however you might be able to find some third-party apps for this with a quick web search.

There may even be some other users here who could even suggest some third-party apps that they know of, or have used before.

As a work around, if you're using the desktop app, you could choose to display folder/file size within your file browser and check for any folders with no data within them.

Sorry that I couldn't be of more help, but do let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks!
