Robert Hobson-Garcia ; Hi !

Not much to work with here .
But ....
what returns:
sudo find / -name i.jpg

- such an odd file name -

Thanks I will give it a try, what i was trying to say, is if i come upon
something that i want to save, and I want to replace an existing file,
when i click on it let us say 1.jpg it tells me that the file already
exisits, (we Know that) and I am about to replace it (we Know that
too).. what I want to happen is to see the file I am about to replace, I
f I have it already it does not need to be replaced, so when i click on
it , I cannot see the existing file..hope that is a better explanation..
