Delete files from sub folder if any, else delete the sub folder


I have a a master folder ABC and 3 subFolder A, B and C and have two more subfolder of subfolder 1 and 2.

a) Now i have to delete those subfolder and folder which is blank, for example if i have files in subfolder 1 then i will not delete that subfolder also will not delete the B folder too but if i have files in folder B and subfolder 1 is blank then will delete the subfolder 1 only.

b) if subfolder 2 is blank and so do folder C then have to delete both the folders.

@Vashisht thank you for the reply, but it didn’t solve the problem,

Scenario is : -

  1. I have to check the directories and delete it if only blank .
  2. It won’t delete the master folder if there is file/s in any of the folder
  3. I have sub-folders too so if the sub-folder is having files then it will not delete the sub-folder.

P.S I have to delete only those folder which is blank only and for that i have to check the sub-folder 1 1st as per screenshot attached above, if the folder is blank then delete if not have to keep that folder and so the B folder as B Folder is having folder 1 and 1 is having file .

Hope i able to explain my situation.
