Explorer type name for Files when duplicates exists

Hello,

Does C# offer any Classes or API which would copy file's name in
Explorer type name if copied file name is allready in use. If you use
Explorer to create directory it's default name is "new folder". After
creating a new folder again it's name is new folder (2).

So, is there any handy way to copy files so that this kind of name
behaviour would also be used?

I ask this because I have a lot's of files and looping aand comparing
file names sounds a little bit clumsy.

Cheers.

Hi,
No, there is no
You need to check the existence of a file and take appropiate actions
