When you copy files from one folder to another and the destination contains a file with the same name, you are prompted to over ride it or override all.  What if you do not want to over ride any.  There is no global response for this.  You must answer no for each one.  Is there a better way ?

I'd right-click the file prior to moving and rename it.

OR, if you prefer and are dealing with groups of files which you want to copy or move, and want to maintain the same names and extensions, you can create a new folder and move/copy them there instead. The design as it is, intends to protect your files from erroneously being overwritten, thus the cautions and prompts.
