Find duplicates ONLY among two folders, even if there's duplicates in one of them

Hugo Delgado

I would like to know what filter to use so that the search for duplicates only shows me the files that are among the folders I have selected to search. For example, in folder A, there are "File 1" and "File 2", and a folder where "File 2" is duplicated. Meanwhile, in folder B, there is "File 1". I want the results to only show me "File 1", which is the one shared by folder A and folder B. I have tried using the filter I attached as an image, but it doesn't work. What should I use then? There should be a button or option just for this situation.

I would love to have this feature! Just a search for duplicates between two directory trees, without checking "internally" on each other for duplicates (or at least not showing them in the final report).
I played around with the filters a bit, and indeed it doesn't seem possible to do it today.
