It doesn't REALLY seem so, does it? Just from looking at it, and trying to apply some logics and common sense, I'd say SDB1_Maxtor_Drive, MAXTOR_SDB1, and NEVER_DELETE_THIS_DIRECTORY are missing in /media/andy/MAXTOR_SDB1/Ubuntu_Mate_18.04/, and 2019-02-23_23:42, and 2019-02-25_03:47 are missing in /media/andy/MAXTOR_SDB1/Linux_Files/.
The other filenames are paired and seem to exist in either dir but cannot be considered equal based on the info known thus far.
