// Load the library at macro parsing time: we need this to use its content in the code
void copytree2()
TString dir = "$ROOTSYS/test/Event.root";
const auto filename = gSystem->AccessPathName(dir) ? "./Event.root" : "$ROOTSYS/test/Event.root";
TFile oldfile(filename);
TTree *oldtree;
oldfile.GetObject("T", oldtree);
// Activate only four of them
for (auto activeBranchName : {"event", "fNtrack", "fNseg", "fH"}) {
oldtree->SetBranchStatus(activeBranchName, 1);
// Create a new file + a clone of old tree header. Do not copy events
TFile newfile("small.root", "recreate");
auto newtree = oldtree->CloneTree(0);
// Divert branch fH to a separate file and copy all events
