  1. Windows: How does the replace work when moving files


    Hello,



    When moving files with the same name, date, and size into the same location and the option to replace is selected how does windows replace the current file with the new one?

    Does it delete the current file saved in the folder then start to move the replacement file? Does it move the replacement file into a temp memory then once its fully transferred it replaces the current file?

    I’ve asked a few people and I keep getting different answers and sadly they all seem kind ofbelievable.


    Thank you in advance

    :)
