I have been scanning, editing and saving photographs for several weeks. Initially if I inadvertently selected an existing file name I received the Windows 7 version of the old Windows warning "File xxxxx already exists, Do you want to overwrite it?". Suddenly today I found I was not getting that warning with Corel Photo-Paint and that files were being overwritten. I checked this phenomena with Word 2007 by creating a temp.docx file then creating a new page and using the Save As command with the same file name. It overwrote the original without giving me any warning. I also tried with a temp.txt file in Word and strangely that happily overwrote the original without any warning YET when I tried in Wordpad, the Windows 7 version of the warning appeared. A computer guru friend of mine found he had the same glitch so he made a change to his registry that solved the problem and sent me the following message Open Regedit In the Edit menu select Find Type SaveAs in the find window and click on FindNext SaveAs will be found under the Control Centre Heading Double click on SaveAs to open parameters window. Change value from 0 to 1 Close Edit and reboot. This will enable the overwrite prompt. When I looked for his suggested "SaveAs" I could not find one in my registry. Amazingly when he went to find out the exact location of his change he found that it had been made in a Brother Printer section - but it solved his overwrite prompt problem in Word 2007!!! I have some CORELDRAW registry entries that contain "SaveAs" in their text lines and have 12 as the value. I have checked on my XP system and 12 is also the value used so I do not think a change there will do anything - particularly because the glitch is also happening in Word. I have also checked options available within COREL PHOTO-PAINT. I would greatly appreciate a solution because I have a large number of photos to scan and store and having to scroll through a long list every time to ensure I do not overwrite a file will be a pain in the but. When copying files from one folder to another the 'Copy and Replace' and "Don't Copy' options appear as they should.
