Receiving files and folders under Windows (Receive Dialog) picture of the receive dialog

Fist you must start the explorer on the receiver. Then select a folder , where you want to receive them. Then press the right mousebutton. A context menue appears. Here you must select "Powercopy >>>> Receive here" on the receiver side.


The receiver dialog window now appears. Click the 'Start Receiver' button to begin the file transfer (be certain the sender PC file transfer has been started). After the transfer you can check which files have been transferred and which files couldn't be (on the sender side).  See result list.
The following actions allow a simple and high speed file transfer/synchronization between PCs.

Important hint: After the transfer press the F5 key (refresh) in Windows Explorer to see the newly received files.

Overwrite modes:
Powercopy offers several overwrite transfer options (see below for details):

'only older files' - receiver files which are older than the sender files will be overwritten.
'all files'  -  all transferred files which already exist on the receiver PC will be unconditionally overwritten.
'ask on every existing file (default)' -  see details below.
'only non existing' -  only files unique to the sender PC will be transferred.
'only different' - all files unique to the sender PC and duplicate files with different attributes will be transferred (overwritten).

Usage of 'ask on every existing file (default)' overwrite mode.
**Caution: For proper operation both the sender and receiver PCs must have this option selected.**

Type the following appropriate response when prompted by the receiver PC:
'a' - (all) - All files will be overwritten automatically.
'y' - (yes)  -  Overwrite this file.
'n' - (no)  - Keep the current file (no transfer of the current file occurs).
's' - (skip all)  -  None of the existing files are overwritten.
'o' - (all older)  - Only files, which are older at the receiver will be overwritten.

Note: You must respond to these messages within a certain time range. If you haven't pressed a key the default key is used (see below).

To better visualize the file to be overwritten, the overwrite dialog appears in three different frame colors:
red:  The current file is newer than the file which is to be transferred.
white: (neutral) The file is identical (Date and Time) to the file in the receiver PC. 
green:  The file in the receiver is older than the file to be transferred.
