Delete Zero Byte Files

Post by brithelp » 03 Feb 2020, 04:23

I searched for duplicates by name and extension. The results contain many groups, some with large and small files, some with large and zero byte files. How can I select only the zero byte files in the groups?

Try the action "Select all files except the smallest file". See main menu bar -> "Select".

With this example, the action "Select all files except the smallest file" would select File 2 and File 4. I'm looking for a way to select only File 4.

Code: Select all

Group 1:
File 1    8 KB
File 2    2 KB

Group 2:
File 3    3 KB
File 4    0 KB

Currently you cant automatically select files by a specific size.
I will add this to the ToDo-List.

new update available:

Search Result / Menu 'Select': Added the command 'Select files by size' with the options 'smaller than', 'equal to' and 'larger than'.
