The Delete Empty Folders Process
The Delete Empty Folders Application Engine process (PTPP_FD_DEL) deletes portal registry folder references that do not contain child folders or content. The process does not delete empty Navigation Collection folder placeholders, nor the My Favorites folder. The user ID running the process must have been assigned the security role of Portal Administrator.
Run this process when you are deleting content references during an upgrade or implementation, and you are removing out-of-date navigation and replacing it with the current delivered navigation. You should also run this process after copying a "delete" portal project.

Question: What does “Run this process when you are deleting content references during an upgrade or implementation, and you are removing out-of-date navigation and replacing it with the current delivered navigation” mean?
