How to search for specific repeating folder pattern

Post by j2associates » Thu May 13, 2021 4:39 pm

Hello all,

I want to find all occurrences where a given folder has a child folder of the same name (e.g. a/b/c/c or a/b/b). In the prior example, I would want to match folder C in the first example and folder B in the second example. I'm not sure how to do this. The depth at which this happens will vary.

Thanks in advance for any ideas and/or suggestions.
