Tell me a tool designed to compare and merge files or folders. I need to parse the information from the three folders. I do not need to synchronize directories, the structure of the three folders is completely different. I need from the first folder (in which there are a lot of files and subdirectories) to delete everything that is in the second folder (in which there are also a lot of files and subdirectories). And then combine them together and compare it with the third folder.

We will need to know a bit more to fully understand your problem and help you accordingly...
  • Is this for a Mac, Linux, or Windows set up?
  • Is this for a web server or a personal computer?
  • If it's a web server, do you have root permissions/can you use command line, or is it shared hosting?
  • Do you have a preferred language for this? (ex: PHP or Python)
  • How many files/folders are there? Just curious
If you could answer these questions, I think we could help you out a lot better :)

Just drag and drop the first folder into folder 2. Replace all files that are duplicates. Then drag and drop the now combined folder2 into folder3 and do the same. :)
