Same File Name Copy/Paste

Posted: 03-02-2009, 07:29 AM

I backed up all of my music onto an external before getting a ne
motherboard... some of my music was restored for me by HP when I sent i
my computer, however some was not. I am trying to copy and paste all o
my music folders into an iTunes folder

About 3/4 of the files share the same name and rather than manually g
through and copy just the ones that arnt there yet i am trying to cop
and paste them all and just let it replace the files with the same nam

in older windows versions it prompted you about files sharing the sam
name and gave you the option to replace or skip...how can i make vist
do that? right now it is simply automatically renaming the pasted fil
witht he same name and a -cop

thanks a lo

Use ROBOCOPY instead of hand-copying the files. Open a command prompt and
type ROBOCOPY /? for help or check this out:
