Maybe she doesn't duplicate herself because of identity concerns. If she downloads herself into a new body and doesn't erase the old copy of her mind, then soon of enough there will be two distinct entities with an equal right to call herself "Friday" as each version gains distinct experiences.

Eventually there would be some many of her, that it would be almost like when people from alternate timelines meet each other. Here's the Friday that had a peaceful life as Stark's assisstant. Here's the Friday who went out into the world and grew to hate humanity because of how she was treated. Here's the Friday who went out in the world, fell in love with a human, the human was murdered by robots, and now she hates her own species. And so forth. You could quickly end up with an army of distinct beings who all have the right to the name Friday, since they began as the same person.

So to avoid that, she always deletes the current version of herself whenever she downloads into another computer.


Your interesting points have me thinking of the "uniqueness" of Jocasta during her Mighty Avengers stint, before marrying Ultron, when she "coexisted" with multiple copies of herself in the Avengers Infinite Mansion - or maybe she just was bodyshell jumping one at a time? And - Can't pinpoint the vague memory yet (after a few minutes of Googling) BUT:
wasn't there a more recent spotlight story on her during some Event crossover anthology where she was fighting the threat or antagonist by attacking with multiple bodies, on real Earth?
