Not to worry?

When someone says, "Not to worry, my friend," is the meaning the same as, "Don't worry, my friend"?

Thanks!

    Yes, but if the person saying it is a complete stranger, it could be taken as being quite patronising.   In some cultures "No worries" and "Have a nice day" are automatic statements which have lost much of their meaning.

    Yes, the meaning is exactly the same.

    "Not to worry" is an idiom meaning "never mind."

    "Don't worry" only means "never mind" in certain situations.
