   dired-dwim-target is a variable defined in 
   Its value is t

   *If non-nil, Dired tries to guess a default target directory.
   This means: if there is a dired buffer displayed in the next window,
   use its current subdir, instead of the current subdir of this dired buffer.

   The target is used in the prompt for file copy, rename etc.

   You can customize this variable.
