      Description

      In 4.3, copyRecursively would replace existing files. In 5.0, the move to Files.copy means that existing files are no longer overwritten and the copy fails with a FileAlreadyExistsException.

      I wonder if this change was intentional (and could perhaps be mentioned in the javadoc), or if using StandardCopyOption.REPLACE_EXISTING would be appropriate.
