I an trying to copy all of my vidoes and images to my external drive. However, on checking these, many are shown as 'Empty Folders'. How do I delete these? I don't want to copy the empty ones to my external drive!

Firstly open them and check that they really are empty.

But you should be able to highlight them and then press the delete key to delete them.

Thanks, Woolwell, I thought there may be a 'group' delete I could use, because it looks as if I have a lot of them. But of course, I suppose it is better, as you suggest, to check each one first..boring!

Thanks, as usual!

Group delete - highlight select by shift click or if not together then select by ctrl and click then delete. They do move to the recycle bin.
