You have to decide which of the folders you want to keep. The one from
the branch or the one from trunk.
If you want to use the one on the branch, just mark the conflict as
If you want the one from trunk, you have to first delete the folder on
the branch, then do the merge.
If you want a mix of both folders, you have to do that manually.
