Windows 7: Is there a 'No to all' copy command in W7 the opposite of 'Yes to all'

Is there a 'No to all' copy command in W7 the opposite of 'Yes to all'

When copying a lot of files from one location to another if a file of the same name is encountered a dialog pops up offering to overwrite the old file or not to overwrite the old file - 'Yes or No' and if you want all the same name files to be overwritten - 'Yes to all'.

But what if you want only new files to be added is there a 'No to all' command that will not overwrite old files but carry on copying over the new files.

In the dialog the only option is 'No' meaning lots of clicking.

Thanks

Hi,
As far as I've noticed if you want the same to apply to any other files found with the same name just check the box to apply it to all other files found and click the skip option.

Damn it you're right. I never noticed the 'More' sign at the bottom of the dialog.

Plonker!!!

Thanks anyway.
