    basic copy/paste operation


    This applies to any Windows 10 computer.

    I am reluctantly upgrading my online stuff, and most day to day computing, to a Windows 10 computer. One of the better things I discovered on Windows 7 was, for a copy file operation
    “there is already a file with the same name in this location”
    there were three options

    option 3: “copy but keep both files”

    serially numbers each new addition, allowing easy backup of frequently changed files onto a USB drive with zero hassle of jumping through the hoops and long waits of using a special program. I use do frequently.

    In older systems there was at least the possibility of changing the file name myself within the copy operation but the current system is dumbed down. In Windows 10 there seems to be only the possibilities of replace and skip.

    Is there some easy way to save multiple copies?

    3rd party utilities Total Commander, TeraCopy, or anything similar probably will give the option you want.

    Answering the same query in the last week I found Free commander and XYplorer don't help here.

    Thanks Dalchina! TeraCopy has been good to me for several years now. I noticed if HDD is collecting re-allocated sectors, TeraCopy, like Windows explore, will take longer than usual.
