Copy & move overwrite dialog (F5 / F6)

#1 Post by Hugo_W » 12.04.2020, 12:58

Hello everybody,

when files are copied or moved, the FC sometimes finds a file with the same name in the target directory.
Then the dialog box with the overwrite options appears. (overwrite, skip, cancel etc.).
However, if the files are to be compared manually again, the process must be interrupted.
After the restart, the file name can be changed manually in the window. This is actually far too cumbersome.

An additional button in the overwrite dialog would be very helpful here.
You should be able to immediately rename the file to be copied or moved. The existing file in the target directory should remain unchanged.
Renaming should then take place according to a predefinable scheme. The very helpful functions of batch renaming could be used for this.

Best regards
Hugo

If you mean "Confirm overwrite" dialog then you have at the bottom of the dialog the link "More options".
Click on the link and select the rename option.

Hello Marek,
thanks for the fast information. "More Options" hangs very unspectacular under the buttons.
I had never recognized it as a menu. It would be helpful if the three menu items were directly visible!
