In Windows 7, when you copy a folder to a destination that contains a folder with the same name, you’ll get an alert that asks you if you want to skip the folder, merge the two or cancel.

Android 4.0+ (rooted): One of the best things about having a rooted phone is that you can really get your hands dirty tweaking it. eXperience is a new app that lets you overclock your phone’s CPU, give you independent volume controls, and control music with the volume buttons.
