Overwriting files when copying

Brian Wolfenden Guest

When copying folders to fsx I sometimes get a window saying some of the files have the same name and do I want to replace or skip. It usually happens with gauges or effects files. What should I normally do in this situation?

Most of the time, the files being copied are not model specific. A lot of them use "generic" guages and textures. My suggestion is that you look at the dates of the two files and pick the latest one. (an example is that if you have two of the same, one dated 2-13-15 and the other dated 2-15-18, use the later one). 

Hope this helps
