Do not mark subfolders in Duplicate Folders View

Post by geoorgge » Mon Nov 16, 2020 9:29 am

Hello,
I am looking for the following functionality.

1) I want to mark all "main folders" that have the same content including all its subfolders.
Hence
Main Folder1 Keep
Main Folder2 Mark for Deletion

2) I do not want to mark subfolders of these "main folders" for deletion, in case that only some subfolders match, but not the whole main folder.
Main Folder1 ---> Subfolder1 Not Marked
Main Folder2 --> Subfolder1 Not Marked

Subfolder1 are identical but not Main Folder 1 and Main Folder2

The marked folders should be found by Duplicate Folders view.

How can I do this?
If not possible there, can I do this in Duplicate Files view?

I will be trying the advanced search parameter
7) Same folder name.
This setting enables you to group duplicates by their folder name. The depth setting allows you to specify how far up the folder tree to match. The 'Match full' option requires that the whole path (excluding drive name) is matched.
