We see in the image above, as in the box "Confirm File Replace " Windows XP does not give us the possibility of not copying all files that contain names identical to those already existing in the destination folder. For each negation we have to press the "No" button. The big problem would not be, but if 500 photos are to be copied, and 100 of them is already in the destination folder ... it will take some time for 100 to press the "No".

"No to All"exists in Windows XP, but to use this command you have to hold down Shift and to click on the "No" in "Confirm File Replace".
