I would like to know how to drag and drop a folder on other folder has same name of folder without losing existing files.

For example:

I have same name of file under Folder1 like below. then I move folder1 on Desktop to Documents then will be replaced the folder on Documents. So, File2 will be gone atuaclly the folder will be replaced with Folder1 of Desktop.

  • Documents/Folder1/File2
  • Desktop/Folder1/File3

I would like to have like below result.

Expected results:

Documents/Folder1/File2 and File3.

Hold ⌥ option while dragging the folder onto its target. This will bring up a new dialog that allows you to merge the folders:

After merging, the Folder1 will contain both files. Note that the original folder will still exist at its source location—the files will only be copied, not removed.
