Duplicate vs Copy Functionality

Hi there,

I am brand new to Sage Math Cloud was wondering what the difference is between "duplicate" and "copy" in relation to directories/folders? When I select a directory I see a toolbar that has two different icons, one for "duplicate" and one for "copy." However, if a specific file is selected, then only "copy" exists. Can anyone tell me how these two are different or when each might come in handy?

Thanks!

(PS, if anyone has suggested tags for this, I'd be happy to update it, I'm just not sure what to use for a question of this sort?)
