ReallyReallyEmpty:

Postby froggie » Tue Jan 10, 2017 3:18 pm

When using the Empty: function, the folders found might not really be empty, depending on filters, excludes, hard links and recent updates. So before I delete or move a folder found with Empty:, I open it to be sure it is really empty. This obviously can take a long time for many folders.

Would you consider a ReallyReallyEmpty: function, used with the Empty: function, that reads the directory of a folder to verify it is really empty. It would not have to be very efficient, since it would only operate on folders that passed the Empty: filter.

Thank you.

Please double check by selecting all the results and opening the property page (Alt + Enter).
Check the file count is 0.

Wonderful! That will save me a lot of time. Yet another feature of Everything - properties across multiple files/folders on multiple drives.
