    force autoreplace when copying or moving


    Aside from Xcopy, Robocopy, batch files, or the like, is there any way to have Windows quietly replace existing files when copying or moving?

    It won't 'quietly replace' as the OP wants. Duplicate names will trigger a request for you to choose what action to take. I think Hairy Scot want's to bypass this prompt, but I don't know if there's any way to do that.

    You've hit the nail on the head Bree.
    I have searched and searched but to no avail.
    I was hoping someone on the forum would have an idea.
    But perhaps even Brink is stumped.
