2. As for folders inside ROOT folder (Folder A and Folder B), the
folder which is recorded earlier on the disc will be set as folder 2.
3. As for folder inside Folder A (Folder C and Folder D), the folder
which is recorded earlier on the disc will be set as folder 3.
4. Because there is no folder in Folder C, Folder D will be set as
folder 4.
5. Folder E which is inside Folder D will be set as folder 5.
6. Folder B inside the ROOT folder will be set as folder 6.
