Windows: remove empty directories
The following command will remove empty directories in windows.
I needed to remove empty directories from a network drive. I mapped the newwork drive as the Z:\ drive. Then I ran the following command from a DOS box:
for /f "delims=" %d in ('dir /s/b/ad') do rmdir "%d"
z: moves to the z drive
rmdir removes directories. Windows will only allow it when it is not empty
dir /s/b/ad will list all directories (/ad) in bare format (/b), recursively (/s)  
The for loop loops over all directories  
Please use at your own risk!
