A quick question, is it normal that file explorers in Android don't support overwriting a file? I tried to move some images (wallpapers) from Dropbox to my WP folder, but since it appeared to have some duplicated entries, it gave me an error and refused to continue with the rest of the files.

Is there a way to offer a rewrite/rename/ignore feature in these cases or is that a limitation of the OS?
Definitely still monitoring this thread. It certainly is possible to implement the behavior you're requesting, defaulting to halting the operation is just the safest/easiest implementation. With regard to your statemnet that it's not copying the "rest of" the files shouldn't be copying any of the files, i.e., it should be checking first before doing the this not the case?
