compare folder's content just for existing files (or not)

trying to explain in English.. :)

Is it possible with Winmerge to compare folders but not based on folder tree structure, just to know which files of folder 1 exist (or not) in folder 2 (including subfolders)? similarly to conditional formatting in excel to compare 2 lists (of files for instance!).
For example, file dir1\a.txt can be found in dir2\dir3\a.txt (or of more interest for me, which files in folder 1 do not exist in folder2, anywhere)

thank you
