  1. How to automatically rename files with same name when copying files


    Hi, I would like to know if there is some registry hack or something that automatically renames files with the same name when copying or moving.

    For example you have folder with a file called banana.txt and then you copy another file called banana.txt to that folder and Windows would automatically rename the second file to banana (1).txt or banana (2).txt instead of showing the substitute or skip window:

    Java.nio.file - Copying files

    You can't copy a folder, thats why it generates an exception (you are trying to copy a folder using a copy file function).
    You probably need to list all the files inside that folder and copy one by one

    How to automatically rename files with same name when copying files

    Gathering Names Of Multiple Files

    Is it possible to get the names of multiple files and paste them in to Notepad or Word or something?

    Not sure how clear that is - I've got a folder with lots and lots of films from holidays etc. I've spent ages renaming them all to something meaningful (Other than Mov0001, Mov0002 etc etc)
    Unfortunatly, at the time, I didn't think to copy and paste the names in to a file as I did each one. But now people want to know what things I've got - so I want a list of all the names without having to type each one out seperately.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
