I'm a little confused, (containing files of the same name) I have folders 1 ships, 2 friends,etc I would like to add a folder with black and white pictures in. The folder is called black and white. Would that be alright to put onto the disk with my folders containing my pictures?
Just make sure they have different names from anything there already. For example, if in "Friends" you have a pic called "Jane" and another called "Bob", you must not name any new pic "Jane" or "Bob" because then they WOULD overwrite the existing pics(it doesn't matter whether they are black and white or colour), You'd get a warning message first, no doubt. However, if you've got a different/new pic of (say) Jane you can call it "Jane2" or "Jane 2" or any other variant so that YOU know it's Jane and the computer realises they are diffent pics (files).
Just to clarify; it does not matter what names you give to individual files, but the parent folders must be different.
Pic001 in Folder A will not be over-written by Pic001 in Folder B.
For example; I have archived work that is made up of various folders with meaningful names that contain files with the same names, like excel01-03 through to excel12-03. The CDFS (Compact Disc File System) copes with this and none of the identically named files are lost, as long as they have their own parent folders.
I think I know but not positive. I have folders named Ships, friends, family, Grace, HG, Nottingham, etc I would like to add a folder called Black and white to the disk. Inside this folder there might be a picture called Grace, I have many pictures containing the name Grace in my family folder, which haven't been overwritten, so I think I am doing correctly. Are the pictures in the folders considered as files?
I feel sure I now know. Folder called Grace will have a picture called Grace swimming. In my folder called HG I could have a picture called Grace swimming. This picture would not be over written as it is in a folder called HG.
