Thanks radky.

I've only tested briefly but I feel that the new 'Force' option has the potential to make unwanted overwrites.
Unless the 'Newer' option works properly (which it doesn't in my opinion) the new option will always overwrite newer files by older, no questions asked. The unpatched version at least gave the user a chance to check the date.

I can't select 'Force' by default, no matter if I tick the checkbox in Menu Option > Action windows > Default Settings or not. Is this intended? I admit that I don't understand the tooltip explanation ("Don't confirm deletion of non-writeable items"). Embarassed

Edit: After additional testing, it seems the 'Force' option does not fully integrate with the 'Newer' or 'Quiet' options of the ROX-Filer copy/move dialog.

The test binaries in the first post are now removed.
