    Hehe... I suggested a 'skip' under the option key through Apple's feedback system. This is fantastic news. Thanks for pointing this out. I read the list of enhanced features in the software update dialog, and was disappointed that it wasn't mentioned as a fixed issue'... But apparently they did change something. Im going to install the update right away :-)

    This is wonderful, thanks bruised_blood. Pity I just paid for PathFinder for this one feature, but oh well.


    Is there a way we can make this the default option without needing to hold the option key?

    Don't need to hold the option key on my computer. So glad this is back!

    Skip is hardly the same as Don't replce. Skip skips the copy or move process. We still need Don't Replace.

  • Terry Reeves Level 1 (5 points)

    skip appears to work identically with "don't replace" for me if I select it. But I get what seems to be inconsitant appearance of it. Dragging a bunch of files, for some of the same named ones  I get "skip", for others "keep both". This could be based on file size  and or mod date matching (need to test), but if so it doesn't explain why if i re-drag all the files I skipped some of them will now be "keep both" instead of "skip" (but not all). \Repeated drags will eventually get "keep both" for every file. Often I  want to keep both for some or  all matches, other times skip all - I vote for all "replace, "skip" and "keep both" to all be present for every name dup.

    When I drag files from one folder to another and there are duplicates, ¨stop¨ works just like ¨skip¨ or ¨don´t replace¨. In other words, ¨stop¨ doesn´t actually stop the process, it only leaves the duplicates unmoved.


    Furthermore, when I use ¨stop¨ the ¨apply to all¨ has no effect, clicking ¨stop¨ is always applied to all.


    Is this normal? Is there a way to actually stop the copying if there are duplicates?

  • Leo Derks Level 1 (35 points)

    Don't count on stop. In my experience it stops when it encounters a duplicate. This can be in the beginning or anywhere else in the sequence of copying. This is your worst option because you don't know what has been copied and what not.

    I am not very pleased that in new versions of OS they are hiding perfect good functions under option keys. This copy function is not the first place I encounter this. I hope not this a trend.
