Conflict window after moving/copying file/folder Replace or Keep Both no longer displayed

Copper Contributor



Since yesterday (03/19/24) some users are reporting us that when they move a file with the same name a 1 is appended to the end of the name, instead of showing the conflict window asking the user if they want to keep both files or replace the file.


Expected behavior: if there is a file or folder with the same name, the conflict window is displayed asking if you want to replace or keep both.

New behavior: after some tests a 1 is automatically added at the end of the name.


Was there any bulletin or communication from MS about this change?

Is there any way to change that behavior, via powershell, central administration or user settings?
