  • How-To Needed for Folder Merge

    Can anyone point me to a video or instructions on how to perform a folder merge? I have two folder from that I want to merge into a third folder. Is this possible? I have tried placing one folder on the left, one folder on the right and an empty folder in the center as the target. If I select a file that exists in the left folder that does not exist in the right folder and select merge, I get a message that says "Base folder does not exist."

    Perhaps I'm misinterpreting the what the folder merge functionality is intended for.
    I just can't seem to find any detailed information as to how this feature is used.
    Thanks very much for any insight that you might offer.

    For the Folder Merge, it accepts 2 or 3 inputs (left/right or left/right/center) into a 4th Output path that is below the 3 input paths. The Output is not represented graphically on screen, but the left side preview gutter icons will turn to green checkmarks for items that are copied/done and in the Output.

    The center pane is meant to be a common Ancestor of the left and right, used in source control solutions.

    Does this get you up and running with the Folder Merge?
