A "Cannot move" error appears when moving duplicate files.

Using the MyTurboPC Duplicate Finder tool an error appears as follows: “Cannot Move filename: A file with the name you specified already exists”. After the scan is completed, the Select Duplicates is checked, then Move Items is checked, and a folder is selected to move the items to.

This error is very rare and may occur on Windows XP systems when attempting to copy over 1000 duplicate files into a single folder using the Duplicate Finder tool. This is in part due to limitations in the Windows XP operating system environment. We recommend copying fewer items to avoid the error.
