Toolwiz care removes empty folders,etc?

I'm trying to find a free software that can scan,find and delete any empty/unwanted files folders,etc from Windows 7.I thought it might have been Toolwiz Care.I can't remember what it was.I know its one thats readily available from various sites like download and other well known freebie software sites.

Thanks.

You would be treading on dangerous ground if you are not sure of what you are doing.

warning   Warning
Do Not delete any empty System Directories, Folders, or files


See this post from Piriform/CCleaner: How about deleting or flagging empty directories? - CCleaner Suggestions - Piriform Community Forums, but if you insist there is a program listed in post #7.

Do not be surprised if Directories, Folders, or files return after you use your machine for a while because some programs will recreate them for their own use.

If a folder is empty why worry about deleting it? It is 0 bytes. A folder in Windows 7 may appear to be empty yet have hidden System files it it. IF they are hidden it would also show 0 bytes.
Most of us use CCleaner to clean up temp files.

You make a valid point.I'll just leave the folders as they are.

Thanks.
