|1) All files from both dir's are "unique". |
2) The "base" would be the Rev1 dir as all unique files. Then Rev2 dir, which may contain some files with duplicate ABCD file names but different (1234) dates would be compared against the Rev 1 dir files. Note that only one of each file name will exist per entire dir.
3) Not sure what you mean? All files in both dir's are technically unique by file name, date created, date in file name, contents, but the newer Rev should supersede, i.e. overwrite the old rev. File created dates are not dependable sources of information. Only the (1234) date is reliable.
The newer Rev (Rev2 dir) would have a more recent date in the (1234) of the file name.
Ideally the same file structure would be maintained, but not necessary. No renaming files.
Main Dir: Rev1
Sub Dirs: 01-Gen, 02-E, 03-M, 04-P
Files in Sub ABCD (1234), BCDE (1234), RSTU(1234)
Main DIR: Rev2
Sub Dirs: 01-Gen, 03-M, 04-P, 05-S ((Notice No 02-E))
Files in Sub ACCC (4321), ABCD(4321), GHIJ(4321)
Sub Dir: 01-Gen, 02-E, 03-M, 04-P, 05-S
ACCC (4321), ABCD(4321), GHIJ(4321), BCDE (1234), RSTU(1234)
Information is knowledge.
