BASE files storage on server (i.e. outside BASE application) has many empty directories, should it?

Description

Are directories removed from the servers file system when they become empty of files? If I add a lot of files to my BASE account, BASE will store them in different directories following some scheme. When I later remove my BASE files the files are also removed from the file system. However, are empty directories also removed? The reason for this question is that our server as a lot of empty directories in the file storage disk.

Directories are not deleted. But if they are empty they can almost always be deleted without harm. The only exception is a newly created directory that were the file upload has not started yet. Currently the naming of the directories follows date and time so it would probably be possible to write some kind of script that checks subdirectories for the last week...
