Windows 7: Question about copying files after specific rule

27 Nov 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Question about copying files after specific rule


I would like to know if it is possible to modify the copy and replace notification in Win 7 so that only the files that have the same name are copied while the rest are not.
For example I have folders/files A B C and I want to paste some folders also names A B C D E. Of course windows will ask me if I want to replace, merge or skip folders A B C while pasting D and E. I would like to copy just A B and C while leaving D and E in their place.
Is this possible or do you know of some software that lets you do this ?

I need this because I need a fast way to sort my music collection which has multiple folders named after the same artist in different locations.
