    Copy & Paste differences with Win. 7 & 10?


    I have several Windows systems!

    2 x Windows 10 & 1 x Windows 7 Prof.

    I noticed that when Copying and Pasting files in Windows 10, it doesn't appear to have the File check saying ' Newer ' (as does Win. 7 Prof) if the file to be copied over is Newer than the existing one?

    I really like that method!

    Windows 10 offers 3 Options but doesn't appear to be as useful as the Windows 7 Method!

    Can I get Windows 10 to ALWAYS recognise if the File I am about to Copy over & Paste to a different folder is Newer than the existing one in that other Folder - File I would like to replace if it is Older?

    Thanks

    :)

    not as of yet.

    there was an update that was pushed to allow for copy/paste in the terminal, but not in any other program.

    hopefully it will be in the pr1.2.

    there is no eta for that yet.

    I think you have some other program installed on the Win 7 system, possibly Teracopy, that is generating the Newer choice. That's not part of the OS as far as I can see.

    My laptop was running Win 7 for 1 year+ before it was upgraded to Win 10.
    I never saw the " Newer" option in my Win 7.

    Mine was a Home Premium edition, but I don't think that would make a difference.

    Well I always had it on Windows 7 Home and it was definitely not an add-on.

    Really ?
    If you still have Win 7 Home, would you please post a screenshot on that?

    If I have time later on tonight, I will swap drives back to 7 and try to get you a screenshot. Fair warning, it will be late tonight.

    I love that Win. 7 format and is one big reason I am reluctant to change to Win. 10 on that particular machine!

    Oh, that one.
    Yes, I saw that numerous times. I forgot about that.
    Thank you for pointing it out.

    If you click the Compare both files selection you get a windows where you can keep both files and a number will be added to the new one being copied.

    Couple extra clicks but the capability is there.

    Pretty sure Windows10 will bold the higher filesize or newer date, allowing you quickly reference both data points to determine which is the file you want to keep.
