Windows File Copy Utility Needed

By tscislaw ·
Is there a utility available that will copy folder contents to a target folder but not overwrite duplicate files that have newer dates?

If I do a standard Windows copy/paste, any files with the same name in the target folder will be overwritten even if their dates are newer.

There are many programs, including freeware, that can do this. They fall into two categories: File Managers and command-line utilities. The two that I use are Servant Salamander, a dual-pane manager that can sync two folders, and XXCopy. Sorry, I don't have URLs for either at the moment but you will find them with your choice of search engines.
