Windows 7: Copy+Replace dialog. Is there a way to get old one, like in XP?

Ironically, that seems just as complicated as using the command line where you can just copy and paste the directories (since they are already open during this time, as Cyric stated) rather than have to navigate back through explorer again to find each one.

LOL. I'm used to UNIX command line, so anything is easier to me

Me too, but the OP expressed disinterest in anything command line related and this GUI, somehow, seems to be just as complicated (kind of defeating the purpose of the GUI).

I saw that, but didn't know if it would ask for overwrite confirmation.

It gives you a one-click choice:

I tried this solution out and I have to say that I love it. It came with a few extra things that i missed from XP (like the up arrow for folder traversal!!!) Whats great is that you can configure it to use both the new stuff and the old stuff depending on what you like. So far I haven't had any problems and I am much happier with windows 7 now (was pleased to begin with but now its just cake).

If I do end up having problems, I'll check out TeraCopy.

id love it

Id actually love it if windows xp had this feature that you so distaste. hoenst this is really good file handling. i have a number of photos that i want to put on my pc and everytime i move files from my camera to the folder the camera recognises that there are no photos and resumes the file name as ?????001.jpg so while i fill up my memory card and it comes to the point i want to move it to my pictures or pictures in win7 it asks me do i want to replace the file or rename it systimatically. of course rename it i dont want to go on a lenthy process of cancelling and renaming i want to do it automatically. in xp we have the overwrite option or cancel. its pretty lame. I LOVE THE WINDOWS 7 and vista option. serious is it possible to do this in xp. id love to change from the old ways to the new ways!

if anyone knows please contact me.
