I can't tell you how many times I've at some point found out that I have a copy of some file/dir/dir structure, or shortcut, just lying around in some other dir where it has not business being. Or even worse: it has been moved there from its original position.
It's extremely easy to accidentally perform such file operations in modern Windows' File Explorer.
How can I make it ask every time before it performs any action related to copying or moving files?
While I can imagine that this also will become a bit annoying, it's probably better than the constant stress from fearing that files have moved around or got copies without my conscious consent.
I often wish in general that Windows could be set to some kind of "paranoid superuser mode" where all kinds of "convenient" things are turned off to improve peace of mind and to resemble the behaviour of early versions of Windows.
