If I understand correctly, the solution would be:

1. move to Dir1
2. Press Alt - R - O (Other)


This will work in a structure like:

Main Dir
SubDir1
SubDir(a)
SubDir2
SubDir(b)
SubDir3
Subdir(c)
SubDir4
Subdir(d)

By Moving to SubDir 1 and issuing the command, you end up with:

Main Dir
SubDir1
SubDir2
SubDir3
SubDir4

However, this collapses any open directories except for SubDir1 and in addition, this command will do nothing if you start with Main Dir and not SubDir1. If you wanted to include Main Dir then use Alt - R - N (Non-Current Directories).

This command will also work in Directory Mode W. Press W then from within the Main Dir, issue the command Alt-R-N. Same result.

If instead you need to keep certain subdirectories open and the files remain tagged, then I hope there is someone else who may be able to assist you.
