Re: overwrite/convert a working directory

Well yes, if you tell it to replace the entire folder, then I suppose
you get what you ask for, though that's rather unexpected and counter
intuitive. Does it offer another option? On most other guis if you do
this you get a copy/merge, and are usually prompted for each conflicting
file to replace or keep. What if rather than move the folder you
explicitly copy and paste?
