I was in the middle of copying a lot of files on my Windows 8.1 system when suddenly the explorer process was terminated and restarted by itself. Afterwards I went to copy all the files again. Some were already copied, others were not copied at all, but I procceded to select all the folders and copied them again. Now in the end of the copying procedure Windows prompts me with a window "Replace or Skip Files?".
The explorer process resetted exactly because I was performing too many transfers simultaneously, that it reached a point where it throttled. I know this from experience as I've attempted the same thing in the past multiple times.
These are the files that were probably partially copied and now its asking me whether to overwrite them. Now since it is asking me this, then a file can probably be partially copied in Windows. But I want to be sure.
I also wander what happens If I moved instead, would the source file be partially "missing" as well? This is a question specifically about the Windows OS filesystem.
Thanks in advance.
