compare the folders, delete unique files

Hello folks,

I wonder how can someone compare two folders and delete unique files from one folder out of the two.

In ideal case, I am looking for an utility that will look similar to CloneSpy (http://www.clonespy.com/images/screen.png) but instead of deleting duplicate, will delete Unique files from one folder.

Many thanks in advance.

How to delete files and folders not found?
I keep getting these, try to delete them, says cannot find file, but yet, there it is, in the folder. I have two folders that have similar files in them, win7 refuses to delete them, even in safe mode. I end up hiding the folders so I dont have to look at them all the time. How do I fix this crap?
