Is there a way in windows XP to merge multiple folders and automatically retain the most recent files? As you know, in windows, when the files in one folder are moved to a second folder and files of common type and name are present, Windows asks whether you want to replace the file in the destination folder with the one being moved. This process takes place one file at a time.
Let's say you have a large number of folders many of which contain common files. Is there any process that will automatically search all of the folders and retain only those files that were modified most recently?
