Thanks for all the help folks,
I ended up doing a loop over the path list
For path in paths
if path in paths
Delete any matching lines in paths
Print path (so I can still retain the path)
So this effectively removes any lines with /path/to/folder/subfolder when
the path im using in the if is /path/to/folder
It seems to work :)
