Can I safetly delete the empty folders in the repository?

Hi there!

I’ve been using Kopia for a while now and I’ve really been enjoying it so far.

One question I have though is about the content of the repository folder.

It contains, on my machine, 456 files (ok) and 14 456 directories (!). Which means taht at least 14k directories are empty.

My question is: can they safely be deleted? They really slow down my backup program which goes through all these folders, so I’d like to remove them if possible.

I’ve already run multiple kopia maintenance run --full (with no object being too early to be deleted) and I still have all these files.

Thanks in advance for your answers!
