-''​Tutorial under development''​+DropIt allows to perform several operations on your files. Sometimes they are minor features, but still useful. An example is the support to remove empty folders and subfolders.
  
-''​>> using Size additional filter and “Scan subfolders and not try to process them” disabled''​+To do it you simply need to follow these steps. 
 + 
 +\\ 
 +---- 
 + 
 +===== Step 1 ===== 
 + 
 +Uncheck "''​Scan subfolders and not try to process them''​" from DropIt Options (it is required, otherwise subfolders will be always scanned and not processed as items). 
 + 
 +Optionally check "''​Ignore unassociated files/​folders''"​ from DropIt Options (it is not required, but avoids the need to decide how to process other files). 
 + 
 +\\ 
 +---- 
 + 
 +===== Step 2 ===== 
 + 
 +Create this association:​ 
 + 
 +Name: ''​Remove Empty Subfolders''​\\ 
 +Rules: ''​**''​\\ 
 +Additional Filters: ''​Size < 1 byte''​\\ 
 +Action: ''​Delete''​\\ 
 +Destination:​ ''​Directly Remove''​ 
 + 
 +\\ 
 +---- 
 + 
 +===== Step 3 ===== 
 + 
 +Drag-and-drop the main folder you want to scan, to remove included empty subfolders. 
 + 
 +Note that it will remove all subfolders //"​smaller than 1 byte"//,​ so also if they include empty files and folders.
