Location marking

 
You can access location marking tools from the Duplicate files right-click context menu.
 

Marking all files outside a folder (or folder tree) that have a duplicate inside that folder

 
This function will mark all files outside the selected folder/tree which are duplicates of the files in the selected folder.
 
If the 'Preserve' option is checked then any files in the selected folder/tree will be un-marked.
 
Example:
Selected folder name = C:\MyFiles\
 
Files in Group 1:
C:\MyFiles\file1.txt
D:\Backup\file1.txt
D:\Backup\copies\file1-copy.txt
 
Files in Group 2:
C:\MyFiles\Doc.txt
C:\MyFiles\Doc (2).txt
D:\Backup\Doc.txt
D:\Backup\copies\Doc.txt
 
After this operation the files in the Backup folder are marked:
 
Files in Group 1:
C:\MyFiles\file1.txt
D:\Backup\file1.txt - MARKED
D:\Backup\copies\file1-copy.txt - MARKED
 
Files in Group 2:
C:\MyFiles\Doc.txt
C:\MyFiles\Doc (2).txt
D:\Backup\Doc.txt - MARKED
D:\Backup\copies\Doc.txt - MARKED
