If you check a folder, that folder is checked out recursively.
But if you expand that folder, all children are not checked and you have
to check them individually. Because if there's one item not checked in a
folder, that folder is *not* checked out recursively.

So to make it easy: just don't expand folders you want to get
recursively but only check them.
Only expand those folders you have to make individual choices about
which child items you want and which ones not.
