KM copy/move files to same folder -> duplicate filenames

Hi community,

When I copy a file into a directory (CM repostiroy in db persistence mode) where the same filename already exists, it creates a second file with a different ID (filename_0). This behaviour is not what an enduser expects. I want a dialog where it asks if I want to overwrite the existing file, rename it or cancel. When I upload a file into a directory where a file already exists with the same name, a dialog like this appears, so why not when copying/moving?

Regards,

Pascal

    Hi,

    Sometimes we need to duplicate the file and do some minor changes instead of creating from scratch.

    At that point of time this option will help you. Anyhow the id will differs and so there is no problem to distiguinsh.

    This behaviour is same with PCD content also.
