Rename with Overwrite situation drops renamed file into instalDir

1.5, 1270a

Rename with Overwrite situation drops renamed file into instalDir.

1. source files
(note that when Windows [7] makes a copy, it renames the copies as
name - Copy.ext or name - Copy (#).ext)

2. overwrite condition
(to which i replied, Yes)

3. result
(original file, & original copy remained, "overwritten" file ended up in Everything's "instalDir")
.

Thank you for the bug report therube,

I'm aware of the issue.
Everything is currently stripping the path part in the recent update when generating the new filename from a rename collision.

It will be fixed in the next alpha update.

Everything 1.5.0.1271a fixes an issue with the generated new filename from a rename collision.

Everything was not including the full path with the newly generated filename.
