Summary: Not able to "Overwrite if newer" or "Overwrite if
different"
Description:
When copying, in case the same file already exists in the destination folder,
there is no option to "Only overwrite if newer" and/or "Only overwrite if
different".

This means if copying a directory that only contains smaller amounts of changed
or added information, I either have to overwrite everthing, taking much more
time as needed, or skip any file that already exists, but possibly missing to
copy an updated file.

Steps to Reproduce:
-Just, copy (or move) a complete directory to a different location.
-Change and add some files in the source directory
-Copy it again and miss the option to only overwrite when the source is newer
(or different) than the same file in the destination
