Whren I was using Lion, I was able to save files to my desktop that had the same name and extension as another. Lion would tell me there is a duplicate and ask if I want to replace it or not. If I selected the option to not replace, it would save under the same number but with a 1 or 2 at the end of it.


Since I've started using ML, this no longer happens. It will ask me to either replace the original file or cancel the operation. How can I make ML behave the way Lion did?
