I accidentally copied A LOT of files to the same directory, and they now all end in - Copy, like i would have a file called

If you're worried about transcribing the command incorrectly, you can make a copy of the whole folder first.
In the future, you can press Ctrl+Z to undo a copy operation as long as you perform no other file management operations in the intervening time.
