In shell, it didn't erase old files; instead, they *are* preserved, new files are added. At least on my Unix boxes. I eventually got into problems because of this -- mixing different files with same subdir names.

Três anéis para os Reis Élficos sob este céu,
   Sete para os Senhores-Anões em seus rochosos corredores,
Nove para Homens Mortais, fadados ao eternos sono,
   Um para o Senhor do Escuro em seu escuro trono
Na Terra de Mordor onde as Sombras se deitam.
   Um Anel para a todos governar, Um Anel para encontrá-los,
   Um Anel para a todos trazer e na escuridão aprisioná-los
Na Terra de Mordor onde as Sombras se deitam.
