Windows 7: Merging files & folders

26 Jan 2009   #1

Merging files & folders

Good morning!

Has anyway experienced how two (or more) folders merge?
I've tried several times but instead of asking me to overwrite existing files and folders W7 puts them in there en renames them with "* - copy".
This way I loose track of what's happening.

Any help is appreciated! :)

Was working before, but now not?

This was working before. Anyone know how to set an option to put it back? Or which update to uninstall to get it back?

REG files open in Notepad instead of merging
This is something someone will know how to fix in about two seconds. For some reason my H-P Notebook/Vista Home Prem 64 is opening registry scripts in Notepad rather than merging them and changing or adding the new keys to the registry. It is now defaulted to this suddenly for some reason. You...
