Hi. I'm using the Linux Puppy Slacko OS to get files off my Windows computer because Windows decided to fail. I already have some files on my external harddrive so it keeps saying do you want to overwrite this file and do you want to merge this folder.

I want to click no to all overwrites and yes to all merges and have it apply it to all files being copied over to stop it from keep asking, but is this possible on this OS?

Are you trying to copy over files from a separate partition, hard disk, etc? Please include the path to the Windows files.
