found that for the File option, For an existing Folder, if I choose Merge, will it use the existing folder that is there?

After the first copy, I add some new files to the source folder and run another copy, but ultrcopier does not copy the new files, what am I missing?

You should choose merge, here the new file is created.

I have "Overwrite if different" for File Collision and "Merge" for Folder collision. but when I add new files to folder and do a new copy it does not copy the new files?
