If you don't understand the suggestion, I will be happy to
clarify. Please do not shoot from the hip.
Windows should or should have this ability... Copy all files in a
folder. Navigate to another folder. Select all files in the second
folder. Replace all of those files with your files in the
If I'm not mistaken, that would mirror other Windows copy and
paste functions. Taking a look. Currently, apparently that
operation replaces only the files that are in the clipboard. So
the question would be "Is there any reason to select files in the
second folder if you don't want them either replaced or deleted?"
I think everything else works that way. When you select text,
doesn't matter how much text, it gets deleted or replaced with
whatever is in the clipboard. Same with individual files. Same
So what would be the point? When I select all files in a folder
and navigate to another folder in order to replace all of the
second folder's files with the clipboard files, I have to go
through the additional step of deleting the second folder's files
before pasting the clipboard content files.
If that's a run-on sentence, sorry, I've been doing some
discussion on the open Internet :D
