    "More details" on replacing files doesn't work


    Replacing files works fine, but clicking "More details" doesn't work. Did I miss a file setting?

    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    I believe that only is applicable if there is more than 1 conflict. It will show all files that can be replaced and/or skipped. One file will give the "greyed out" box on Details.

    What do you mean by "conflict"? When I replace a file, I want file details to appear, including size, date modified, and date created. This information used to appear when replacing files in Windows 7.

    I think this appears if you select the option to 'Compare Info for both files'

    Thanks, DavidY. It does appear when "Compare..." is selected. How do I get that to appear automatically when I replace files? It did that in Windows 7. Thanks.

    I'm sorry but I don't know how to do that.
