    I have inherited a mess of folders and files built up for ten years by different people. As such, I would like to delete duplicate folders and merge similar folders but I do not know which folder to keep.
    Ideally, there would be an option to create an alias of the remaining folder in place of the deleted folder, so that effectively the file tree is the same to the user.
    If that is not possible, I would very much appreciate a way to choose to keep the newest dated folder and delete the oldest dated folder.

    Any suggestions appreciated!
