ZeroByteHandler 1.0

A simple and easy to use command line application whose main purpose is to help you quickly manage the empty files from your computer
ZeroByteHandler is a lightweight piece of software developed in order to provide you with a simple means of getting rid of empty files from your system, through the command line interface.

Empty files, also known as zero-byte files, sometimes occur due to programs failures or crashes, when the tool interrupts the creation of an item, before having the time to write it.

The utility is fairly simple to work with, but the fact that is does not offer a Graphical User Interface might put off a lot of people, particularly out of concern that they will not know how to handle the application properly.

Nonetheless, the ZeroByteHandler is sufficiently simple to work with, so for starters you can just drop the executable in Command Prompt and hit the 'Enter' key. The tool will automatically scan the local folder by default and display the retrieved empty files, allowing you to decide what to do with them.

The application features several zero-byte file management options, meaning you can either move them all to a user-defined directory or remove them completely from your computer. At the same time, ZeroByteHandler allows you to export the targeted items to a list on your system, as well as log the program's activity to a file of your choice.

Moreover, the tool features a 'Quiet Mode', which enables it to run on its own, without prompting you for confirmation on the deletion or overwriting of an empty file, preventing it from interfering with your other activities, when it is handling these items.

To sum it up, ZeroByteHandler is a handy utility that can successfully assist you in disposing of the empty files from your PC however you please, working through command line arguments to speed up the process.
