If you are dragging a file into a directory that has the same name as a file already in the directory, it will always ask you if you want to replace that file.  It's not relevant what version, file size, date, etc, that the file is when performing that operation.  The message box gives you the name, size, and dates of both files with the option to copy it or not.  Windows will never over-write a file in a copy operation without asking you.
