Copywhiz lets you automatically rename existing file before copying the new file so that you can keep both the files.


    1. Select files using Windows Explorer, right-click on them and choose Copywhiz->Copy from the menu.
    2. Go to the destination folder, select Copywhiz–>Paste from the menu.
    3. While copying, if files with duplicate names exist, the ‘File Already Exists’ dialog box will appear which will show the details of the duplicate files.
    4. Click on the Advanced button placed in the bottom-left of the ‘File Already Exists’ dialog box. Tick the option to rename the destination file with a suffix instead of overwriting it. You can apply the suffix to all duplicate files by enabling the option Do this for all files. And finally click on Rename button. Once the files are copied, you will see duplicate files renamed successfully.
