Hi saleen support,

Looks good. Previously I had to use another utility to cleanup leftovers because Folder Synch couldn't recognize the empty folders. Currently Folder Synch can be considered a reliable synchronization tool which performs 100% of the job.

Thanks for finally addressing this issue. I realize your schedule is very full and that it sometimes takes longer than you would like to address problems.

Dear sajman99,
Build 061 can now delete empty folders in the correct order to avoid the need for multiple passes.

Thanks sajman99 for your feedback.

I will address the need for multiple synchronizations to delete empty folders in a future build.

Hi saleen support,

Yes, you're correct about the multiple synchronizations. It hadn't occurred to me that multiple runs would be productive. Subsequent runs are quite fast anyway, so no big deal. I will now be using Folder Synch more often.

btw please consider synchronization "show details" and "no details" in the Settings. Currently, Synchronize shows details (which of course can be very useful info), but a 1-click/no details option would be convenient. I trust Folder Synch to do its work and don't really need the details.

Hi sajman99,

I had never forgotten your original request from 2 years ago. But when Eta Beta asked about the same thing, I gave it priority.

I noticed it may take multiple synchronizations to delete empty folders.
If they still cannot be removed can you please start the program "as administrator"?
(Right click and select "Run as administrator")

Please let me know.

Hi saleen support,

I read in another thread (thanks Eta Beta) where the empty folder issue has recently been addressed.

I downloaded build 056 beta (actually build 057 ?) to test the latest version. Nice to see Folder Synch can now accurately identify empty folders.  

However, I am noticing that empty folders remain in the Destination path when dealing with renamed and/or moved folders. The files in the respective folders are accurately mirrored source to destination, but the leftover empty folders are not deleted.

Just figured I would pass along this info FWIW.

Hi, thanks for the prompt reply.
Darn- I was hoping to use Folder Synch exclusively because I prefer its logical interface with line-by-line file listing, but this empty folder issue is causing some frustration.
Hope this feature is implemented in the future. I understand you make no promises, but I will remain optimistic.

Dear sajman99,
This feature is not supported.
I will have it in mind for a future version but I cannot promise anything.
Thank you for the feedback.

Greetings, I have just started using Folder Synch and really like this software.
However, I have discovered FolderSynch does not recognize empty folders. Seems like a bug to me. The only way A (Master/Source) can equal B (Destination/Target) is if ALL DATA is accounted for.
I have checked with several other sync tools, and they process empty folders in the synchronization process.
