If you just want to check for empty boxes then,

and filter by the specific Record Type or filter by "behaves like a box"

 

EDIT:

Better solution.  

1.  Create a search with a filter for all records types of type Box.

2. Then add criteria that filters on Boxes that do not contain records of a certain type - in my case Files.  In your case it will be the record types that are folders.
