I am very sorry I haven't responded sooner. I didn't expect this kind of response!
To clarify: What I would like is when copying a file to a folder where an identical exists, an option to rename the original
file, that is, the one that was already in the folder, by appending a simple "(1)" or "(bak)" to the end of the file name. IE: a reverse of the current option to rename the file being moved.
Fligi: But then, for every person who uses it correctly, we'd have two people posting here not having a damn clue what they did with their original file. No, I think Windows Dev Team did it correctly, no offense to the original poster.
That's a fair point, WebMattR... Maybe if the option was hidden? sort of like "more information" when you are moving data, but "more options".
