I am tranfering music files from PC to PC over home LAN. it takes a long
time and for several reasons I have had to restart.

Windows give me an option to "write over all" existing files in destination,
but do skip a file it only give me an option for one file at a time (I have
2500 files to write). So everytime I restart I have to start from scratch
and rewrite over any existing files.

Is there a way to make widows skip all existing files with a single
instruction...otherwise one has to tap the no button 1000s of times.

any tips?

thanks

I use a program called WMATCH.EXE from "PC Magazine". It allows you to match
directories between two drives or two computers over a network.

So, I would recommend a Google search on directory match or similar. You
then use it to match the two folders in question and you will then only have
to transfer those that are missing.
